Is New York City is still a right place for United Nation Headquarter

Roosevelt. During  World War II he  introduced this idea to his good friend  Winston Churchil, British Prime-Minister  and Comrade Josef Stalin of Soviet  Union and on October 24 of 1945 the UN began its operations. That was 70 years ago. What happened during all those years?
