That is great! The Wardenclyffe site, revitalized, would make a great area of interest and historical pride for the Shoreham/Rocky Point area. It is strange to see the forward thinking and hope for Science that is Wardenclyffe juxtaposed next to (almost) the fear and hysteria-based shuttering of the Nuclear plant.
