From the Buffalo News:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s $40 million commitment to implement the Niagara Falls State Park Landscape Improvements Plan already has had a transformative impact on the nation’s oldest state park. Central to the initiative is a proposal to move the statue of Nikola Tesla, inventor of the electric motor who also designed and oversaw the construction of the world’s first hydroelectric generating plant, from its present location to nearer the brink of the falls.
A more appropriate disposition of the distinctive statue, which was a gift to the United States from Tesla’s homeland Yugoslavia on the occasion of our 1976 bicentennial, would be for the government of New York State to transfer it to the City of Niagara Falls, where Tesla’s historic facility actually stood.
