Tesla Statue: American Side Niagara Falls, A gift from Yugoslavia to the United States in 1976, the bronze statue is the work of Croatian sculptor Frano Krsinic. It's on Goat Island, just upriver from Horseshoe Falls, and you get to it by walking through the entrance arch of the old Niagara Falls power plant that Nikola Tesla helped to build in 1895, the first big hydroelectric plant in the world.
Tesla, although giant-size, looks angular and unfinished, He sits in a big chair, wearing what look like rubberized overalls electric shock proof. His head is bowed, and he's reading what appear to be blueprints in his lap The shiny surface of the blueprints suggest that tourists sit on them for photo-ops.
