72_68287W_40_85400NAerial practice target range on Long Island from a USGS map. Some of the smaller “white” outlines are to scale aircraft carrier and other vessels outlines, created in the Pine Barrens probably for WWII said out of painted rocks. Anyone seen them? Large stones are in such short supply there early formal gravestones had to come from Connecticut across the Long Island Sound, it once part of that jurisdiction

The museum would be in the former Peerless Photo, Inc. site which was contaminated and mitigated of photo-chemicals. I’m not sure the tower site was kept, the base was shown in the press to be bulldozed when so cleaned or was in the past. The building was designed by the famous architect, Stanford White, who lived not very far away, nearby Stony Brook having built there a “world’s tallest”(?) windmill. He was a victim of gun violence and a moment of insanity. You might think given the breadth of White’s influence, White House, Washington Square Arch, Municipal building, to name a few, that the Tesla lab would be preserved for that additional historical significance. And it’s nearby the Brookhaven National Laboratory!
