Queen Elizabeth is in town today, unfortunately making her grand entrance on what could be the hottest day of the year.

The 84-year-old monarch will be addressing the United Nations for the first time since 1957, only four years into her reign.

But her majesty, as well as the royal family at large, are hardly strangers to the Big Apple. Take a look below to see a royal scrapbook documenting their visits.
