Tour at Wardenclyffe, Tesla’s Long Island Laboratory

For any folks who might be interested, there is a tour being planned on April 9th out to Tesla’s Wardenclyffe laboratory on Long Island.

Here, in the Wardenclyffe Laboratory on Eastern Long Island, Tesla aspired to power the entire planet, wirelessly transmitting electricity to every corner of the globe. The site once featured a 187 foot tall transmission tower, which was destroyed for security concerns during WWI. The building that remains, designed by famous Stanford White (of McKim, Mead & White), has sat dormant since 1987, the grounds overgrown, and the decades of neglect betraying the incredible importance of this location–Tesla’s last remaining research facility–in the history of energy and electricity.

On Obscura Day, join GOOD editor Ben Jervey at the Wardenclyffe site and meet a founder of the Tesla Science Center, an organization dedicated to preserving the famous lab and turning the site into a museum. They’ll take us on a basic tour around the grounds–entering the site if we gain permission from the current owner–and educate us on the history of this fascinating place.
