Follow the footsteps of this eccentric and colorful resident
With Deborah Zelcer
On the 75th anniversary of his death, join tour guide Deborah Zelcer to prowl the local haunts of the mad genius Nikola Tesla. 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 DeathRay into the ether toward an unwitting recipient! 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.
