UNO City

Flags of the Members States of the United Nations at the UN's Offices in Vienna : Vienna, AT

While we were in Vienna, I took the opportunity to meet with some folks at the United Nation's Vienna offices. Vienna is home to a number of UN agencies, including ones covering drugs and crime, money laundering, narcotics control, outer space, postal administration, and the scientific committee on the effects of atomic radiation, among others. It was the latter group that met with to discuss their editorial needs. These are just a couple of shots taken from the grounds. I wish I'd taken photos of the surrounding neighborhood. It's so different and far more built up now compared with when I was here 20 years ago. Back in the early 90s, this area was really only the UN. Now, there are multi-national corporations and many more skyscrapers than before.
