The New Yorker Hotel is a subject of fascination for fans of Nicola Tesla. The eccentric Serbian inventor spent the last years of his life in Room 3327, according to The New York Observer, so it was only fitting that the Tesla Science Foundation’s “Why Tesla Matters” conference was held at the hotel. Tesla’s old room has a long waiting list. Gordana Loncar, sister of the organization’s founder, once spent the night. “It was a super-exciting feeling; it was magical,” she told The Observer. “I couldn’t quite sleep, to be honest.” The conference is attended by a variety of people—academics, researchers and others whose attraction is more spiritual. Marina Schwabic, executive director of the TSF, said the inventor remains “an inspiration for all the inventors and people who are out-of-the-box thinkers.”
