Welcome to the Tesla Memorial Society of New York Website
Above: Transmitting Tesla Tower and Laboratory built in 1901-1905 by Stanford White, famous architect and Tesla's friend. Located in Wardenclyffe, Long Island. This was to be the first broadcasting system in the world. Tesla also wanted to transmit electricity from this Tower to the whole globe without wires using the Ionosphere. The source of the transmitted electricity was to be the Niagara Falls power plant.
Support Needed to Preserve Tesla's Laboratory in Shoreham, Long Island
The Tesla Memorial Society of New York is appealing to Tesla enthusists in the US and around the world to send letters of support to Jane Alcorn, President, Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe (firstname.lastname@example.org). The support letters are necessary for the application of a wonderful grant offered by the NY State Department of Parks that could provide significant funds towards acquisition of Tesla's Laboratory and property in Shoreham, Long Island. These letters should express your support of the efforts we are making towards the acquisition, preservation, and restoration of the Tesla property.
These letters are time sensitive and should be sent by email to email@example.com as soon as possible.
E-mail from Jane Alcorn, President, Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe, to Tesla Societies around the US:
As you are aware, we are in the process of trying to acquire the property in Shoreham that was once the laboratory of scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla. We have been made aware of a wonderful grant offered by the NY State Department of Parks that could provide significant funds towards acquisition.
We need your help.
As part of the grant application, letters of support are encouraged. We would greatly appreciate a letter from you, written to us, that expresses your support of the efforts we are making towards the acquisition, preservation, and restoration of the Tesla property. Tesla was an important person in the history of technology in this country and the world, and it seems to us that the preservation of his laboratory is worthwhile.
This grant is time-sensitive, and we must hand in everything by September 14. If you would be so kind as to write a letter of support and email it as an attachment to me, I can print out and attach it to our grant application.
Thank you for whatever you may be able to do on our behalf.

Below is our e-mail letter to Jane Alcorn from the Tesla Memorial Society of New York:
To Jane Alcorn, President, Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe:
The Tesla Memorial Society of New York has fought for the last 20 years for the preservation of Tesla's Laboratory and surrounding land in Shoreham, Long Island, USA. We strongly support acquisition of Tesla's Laboratory and Tesla's property which is now on sale by the Agfa Company. We all appreciate your effort to preserve this holy place of science for America and the world.
We placed a link to your request for support letters on our website, and can be found at:
Best regards and thanks,

Below is a letter from our distinguished Board Member, Timothy Thompson to Marc Alessi, great legislator and great man who is pursuing The Wardenclyffe Property for the whole US and Tesla enthusiasts around the world.
The Tesla Memorial Society of New York is grateful to Marc Alessi for his persistent and enduring efforts to preserve Tesla's property and his laboratory. We are also grateful to Timothy Thompson for his beautiful letter to Marc Alessi, the words from his letter come from heart of the Tesla Memorial Society of New York. God Bless you both!
To the wonderful legislator and good person who is pursuing The Wardenclyffe Property for all of US, this place in time for which the bonds that have held Tesla’s incredible memory back are set to be finally broken a century later, hopefully by an opening ceremony at Wardenclyffe of New York’s greatest compliment to the world’s greatest and yet least known scientist and inventor, Nikola Tesla.
Wardenclyffe was the True beginning of radio, and of wireless power. Tesla believed in his vision full-heartedly even to his death over 40 years later. In that knowledge, and knowing as little as I already do about him, I know that whatever he set forward to do, especially a tremendous project like this, that Wardenclyffe would have worked. Tesla was always trying to tap into the already available forces of nature on an unfathomable scale to his scientific colleagues or from what anyone seeks to do now, where all energy needs of the expanding world would be satisfied. He made Earth-moving discoveries through the natural world to invoke the advanced scientific discoveries for all Mankind, not just for special interests and not simply to satisfy the times.
JP Morgan, setting Tesla as low as possible, successfully pushed him away from his greatest potential, the lab embattled, the Wardenclyffe Tower destroyed—yet still with a hope and still Tesla’s dream—because of your efforts. For all the Engineers and thinking scientists around the world, and even the advanced technology of the United States owe undeniably SO MUCH in tribute and honor to Tesla for providing the backbone structure for so many important inventions we take for granted, with so much vision for the future.
I cannot wait to finally see him honored as the New York American and world-renowned scientist that he is, having historically instead been written out of history books and dashed from our schools, unrecognized to this day even for such important and now commonplace inventions like the radio. Because he has had NO DEFINITE PLACE of Honor in America, even after lifting America up as the world’s Greatest Superpower through technology and vision, the people have quickly forgotten his contributions—WE THE PEOPLE look all over America and find no home that was once his…except Wardenclyffe—this is his place of honor that we take back as his and for all of us.
I believe in your efforts and I congratulate you on going this distance with us to achieve what for over 100 years has been apparently impossible, to get back what was taken from Tesla’s greatest Dream…and ours.
Businesses should NEVER have held this land, certainly not for over a century, allowing it to suffer instead of thrive as a beacon to all who might appreciate who Tesla really was and the Truth behind science in general. Wardenclyffe is much too valuable a symbol of many wonderful ideas wrapped into one. Some of which are JUST NOW being realized by MIT spawned companies such as WiTricity who are a century later using Tesla’s ideas on a small scale to promote wireless power for small devices within a room. Of course, I did not notice their offering Tesla any credit for allowing them to focus on their own business which is far too common in all Tesla’s inventions and discoveries that others have made TRILLIONS from worldwide. I wish to see ALL credit given where credit is due and certainly have his place back in the US where I can visit with my family, and tell my family and friends about so they can learn how we made it this far so fast in America while other countries are just now catching up.
l have the greatest hope and backing for your efforts—mine is a recent understanding of the battles Tesla and the Tesla Societies and other groups have been through.
Please make this happen quickly—they have wasted enough of our time holding onto a place that isn’t theirs—it is all of OURS.
Thank you Sir!
