Nikola Tesla In Midtown West

While staring off into space this morning, I noticed this placard on 34th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenue. It turns out that Nicola Tesla died in Midtown West, not far from where Madison Square Garden is today.

Tesla's story always fascinates me, especially his ongoing feud with Thomas Edison. This TED Talk sums up his life well.
