309 East 48th Street
The front part of this tiny plaza at the Permanent Mission of the Socialist Peoples Libyan Arab Jamahiriya to the United Nations consists of 10 steps and a ramp taking the visitor up to the remaining plaza space in front of the building. A bed of roses and flowering shrubs decorates the western edge of the steps. No seating surfaces are available. The arcade exists under the pronounced building overhang. At a recent site visit, the ramp was obstructed by a chain, and a disembodied voice coming out of the speaker box stated that this was a private space.
