At The Corner of Ampere & Ohm In The Bronx (Yes, This Intersection Actually Exists!) @ Scouting NY.

According to the Parks Department, the land was donated to the city by Issac Leopold Rice, inventor and president of the Electric Storage Battery Company, and later the Electric Boat company and the Electric Vehicle company. Because of his background, the city chose to honor his donation with appropriately named streets.

  1. Do they call that Volt Corner? :-)

  2. You need to lobby the city to change Middletown Rd. to Volt (it intersects Ampere, Ohm & Watt).

  3. Current opinion suggests that any name change will be met with resistance :)
