Join tour guide Deborah Zelcer to prowl the local haunts of the mad genius Nikola Tesla, who was born on July 10, 1856. 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.
