The Engineer’s Club — NYC, New York

July 5, 2012 in NYC

The Engineer’s Club was the meeting spot for the Professional Association of Engineers (thanks to a donation by Andrew Carnegie in 1903). A plaque bears Tesla’s name outside the front door (closeup below) and one can only imagine all the fascinating discussions, lectures and ideas that happened in this spot, just adjacent to Nikola Tesla Corner on the edge of Bryant Park.
