Inspired Madness: Nikola Tesla in New York

In the Footsteps of the Legendary Inventor

With Deborah Zelcer

Prowl the local haunts of the mad genius Nikola Tesla on this midtown tour. Tesla brought us the induction motor, current wars, power distribution, a deluge of patents, and a fantastic deserted monument (designed by the eminent architect Stanford White), meant to generate wireless power, graphic images, sounds, data and maybe even a focused Death Ray! Backed and then deserted by the robber barons of the last century, Tesla’s musings, inventions, and rantings predicted and gave form to our modern technological era. Follow the footsteps of this eccentric and colorful resident who left a “charged” impression on our fair city.
