On March 13, 1895, according to The New York Times, physicist Тесла Никола (Nikola Tesla) was grief-stricken when his laboratory on Fifth Avenue in New York City was consumed by fire and collapsed destroying his early research notes, electrical equipment, technological inventions/innovations, and various demonstration exhibits, which had been featured in the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. As a young Serbian immigrant, Tesla worked for Thomas A. Edison at his lower Manhattan research, manufacturing, and training facility, Edison Machine Works, later known as General Electric after several corporate mergers. These early facilities quickly outgrew their meager environments, and both men sought out remote locations to experiment on a grand scale.
