  • Description

    Pier 25 on New York's East River - 3 blocks away from a city garbage pier, and across the river from the UNO building - this is where Soviet Premier Khrushchev's vessel Baltika will dock for the duration of the Communist leader's stay.

    Nearby is pier 73 training ship. All personnel and students will be moved from the vessel while Khrushchev is in New York, for security reasons.

    In the base that has shrouded New York roof tops lately can be seen the UNO building.

    Because Pier 25 is in such bad condition the Russians are paying in the region of $15,000 to have it dredged and redecorated for the Soviet Premier's arrival.
