Wardenclyffe Tower (1901–1917) also known as the Tesla Tower, was an early wirelesstransmission tower designed by Tesla and intended for commercial trans-Atlantic wirelesstelephony, broadcasting, and to demonstrate the transmission of power without interconnecting wires.[2][3] It was never completed.[4]

The tower was named after James S. Warden, a western lawyer and banker who had purchased land for the endeavor in ShorehamLong Island, about sixty miles from Manhattan. Here he built a resort community known as Wardenclyffe-On-Sound. Warden believed that with the implementation of Tesla's "world system" a "Radio City" would arise in the area. He offered Tesla 200 acres (81 ha) of land close to a railway line on which to build his wireless telecommunications tower and laboratory facility.
