Tucked inside a story about how the NYPD thinks the UN is woefully unprepared for a terrorist attack is this little fact about the perks of living outside of city jurisdiction. Though smoking is banned in most UN office buildings (like that firetrap, the Secretariat), it is allowed in the corridors! It's so the French can continue to look cool on American soil, right? With regards to those security measures, the UN is refusing to make the necessary changes to prevent a terrorist attack, preferring to fight back by giving the terrorists emphysema.
