#203 Nikola Tesla in New York
4 days ago
The Serbian immigrant Nikola Tesla was among the Gilded Age's
brightest minds, a visionary thinker and inventor who gave the
world innovations in electricity, radio and wireless communication.
So why has Tesla garnered the mantle of cult status among many?
Part of that has to do with his life in New York City, his
shifting fortunes as he made his way (counting every step) along
the city streets. Tesla lived in New York for more than 50 years,
and although he hated it when he first arrived, he quickly
understood its importance to the development of his inventions.
Travel with us to the many places Tesla worked and
lived in Manhattan -- from the Little Italy roost where the
Tesla Coil may have been invented to his doomed Greenwich Village
laboratory. From his first job in the Lower East Side to his final
home in one of Midtown Manhattan's most famous hotels.
