Wardenclyffe [Aug. 12th, 2006|05:24 am]
Urban Exploration


This was a building I wanted to find and go inside for years. Ever since I read about Nikola Tesla and saw a picture of his Wardenclyffe Lab, I wanted to find it... here it is:

I'm so jealous. that place should be made into a museum. not left to rot like that. it pains me to see how history keeps overlooking tesla as it does.

Woah, its Tesla himself!

Suprisingly for a 100 year old building, it's in pretty good shape. It's not really ROTTING away. That being said, over the years a lot of changes have been made to it which is unfortunate.

But yeah, for AC alone he should be practically worshipped :)

Amazing find. Most people just don't understand how much his work has influenced the modern world.

I wish I had the cash to buy that building and turn it into a loft filled with his inventions. A Tesla coil in a cage would be a great hit at parties! LOL.

It's amazing the building is even there, and it's amazing something hasn't been done with it. I was seriously suprised to actually find a plaque on it..

Every time I see a picture of Thomas Edison or something praising him, I feel compelled to say that he was such a douchebag for everything he did to drag Tesla down. Last I'd heard about Wardenclyffe was that they'd renovated it and someone had moved in to use the building for business. I don't know how old that was, but by the looks of it, it may have been let go by the Dot Com crash with the way things grow in the Northeast. I always wanted to go visit this place. I'd also heard that the local municipality was doing its best to preserve it, including a plaque, but I guess that wouldn't the truth anymore. We need to form a conservatory group, pool our resources, buy the building, and turn it into a museum like was suggested above. And rebuild the tower. Free energy for all! ...even if the tower isn't functional, it's still a part of it.
