التاريخ[تحرير | عدل المصدر]

تأسس مكتب انضمام للجيش عند تقاطع الجادة الثالثة مع شارع 46، بعد تمرير النسخة الأولى من قانون التجنيد أثناء الحرب الأهلية الأمريكية. وفي 13 يوليو 1863، أضرمت عصابة غاضبة النيران في المبنى حتى أتت عليه بالكامل وواصلت الشغب في الحي المجاور، فدمروا بلوكات سكنية بالكامل. شغب التجنيد في نيويورك استمر لثلاثة أيام قبل أن تتمكن قوات من الجيش من احتواء الجموع الغاضبة، التي أحرقت ونهبت أجزاء كبيرة من المدينة.

مقر الأمم المتحدة يقع في خليج السلاحف.
