LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y. – United Nations FCU put its own imprint on this city’s skyline this week with the opening of its new 17-story headquarters, the tallest office tower to open in this suburb of Manhattan in 17 years. The $2.5 billion credit union will occupy the first seven floors of the $65 million building, the tallest opened in the neighborhood since Citigroup built its 50-story structure in 1989. UN FCU celebrated the opening with a $15,000 contribution to one of its neighbors, The Floating Hospital, which opened in 1866 to travel the five boroughs by waterway and recently opened its first land-based clinic nearby.
