“The K-Rope” is now up at Corvus.com.
Famed inventor Harvard Kleinman came out of retirement Sunday to celebrate the 70th anniversary of his illustrious K-Rope. At a special ceremony held at Newark Penn Station, Mayor Booker praised the apparatus, citing its historical impact on transportation in Newark, the United States, and across the globe.
While today’s advanced K-Rope is well-known to the public, few may recall Kleinman’s original device or even the inventor himself, for that matter.
“I was miserable,” said Kleinman in a lengthy Time Magazine interview last year. “Before the rope, I didn’t have two dimes to my name!”
