The original version of King Kong premiered in New York, Prohibition in the USA ended after 13 long years, Loch Ness monster was allegedly seen for the first time in the 20th century, and an American electrical engineer and inventor, Edwin Armstrong patented FM radio after working in secret in the basement laboratory of Columbia's Philosophy Hall.
