New Yorkers know what they know about Nicola Tesla in the poll, and then named the corner between Sixth Avenue and 40th Street, even to the questions of “who is that” and “what’s that weird name?”
A section of Manhattan on the corner of America Avenue (6th Avenue) and 40th Street has been named after Tesla since 1994. In that area of Bryant Park, he used to feed the pigeons every day as he walked from the New Yorker Hotel where he had stayed in recent years to the City Library (New York Public Library).

Everyone who blocked Tesla’s corner still didn’t want to talk in front of the camera. There were New Yorkers born in China, Colombia, South Africa, India, and other parts of the United States, all of whom, although they know the greatest minds in the world, and without anyone’s inventions, they add that New York would not be a “never-sleeping city” and that Tesla would not have taken its rightful place outside of scientific circles.

In his opinion, more people related to science know about Tesla. “He is known in scientific circles,” Thai said, adding that he had heard that Edison had stolen some of Tesla’s patents and ideas.
Many of the respondents ulate that Tesla was born “somewhere in Europe” and “somewhere in Austria”, but for someone born in South Africa everything is clear.
– He is a Serb, Edison was his opponent, he worked on the wireless transmission of electricity – as he says, the person working on electricity. After all, Edison has gained all the fame and all the credit, he added.
Another New Yorker says he does not know where he was born, but Tesla is more important than Edison.
I think everyone knows about Edison, no one knows about Tesla – said the middle-aged man, and Elon Musk helped change things.

Tesla’s memory has also been preserved at the New Yorker Hotel, not far from Bryant Park, where he has lived for the past ten years.
The hotel, which housed a number of dignitaries from John Kednadi to Mohammed Ali, had its own power plant for the first time, and in 1977 set up a board that wrote it; “Tesla died here in January 1943, at the age of 87. He was a great Yugoslav-American scientist who introduced America and the world to the modern era of the Industrial Revolution through his discoveries.”
Room 3327 (where he lived at 3328), where he worked on the 33rd floor, is officially called Tesla’s Room, and his achievements are inscribed on a plaque at the entrance, including a reminder of the Niagara Falls hydroelectric plant.
Tesla had four official formal laboratories in New York, where he lived for six decades, but only a fifth was saved on Long Island, and now there is the Tesla Science Center Warden Cliff (TSCW).
