Nikola Tesla Corner – NYC, New York

July 5, 2012 in Eccentric Tesla, NYC, Pigeons, Ultimate Tesla Tour

At the corner of West 40th Street and Avenue of the Americas (6th Ave) on the edge of NYC’s lovely Bryant Park sits Nikola Tesla Corner. During his many decades as a resident of the Big Apple, Tesla visited this park often. During the last part of his life he would visit daily to feed pigeons, which he’d grown more and more obsessed with over the years, even claiming to be deeply in love with one in particular.

Situated just behind the 42nd Street New York Public Library, Bryant Park is a fantastic stop for any tourist.

But a special bonus for Tesla Tourists, is that it’s located adjacent to a building once known as The Engineer’s Club, with a plaque bearing Tesla’s name outside the front door.
