In 1891, Nikola Tesla established a laboratory at 46 and 48 E. Houston St. At the laboratory, he demonstrated the possibilities of wireless power transmission by lighting electric lamps wirelessly.

Tesla also prepared his demonstrations for the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago at this location. Among the responsibilities of lighting the fair with AC power and fluorescent bulbs (created with the collaboration of George Westinghouse), Tesla also created whimsical demonstrations of electrical power like the Egg of Columbus.
