Here's Where to Find Uptown's First Curbside Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger


Here's Where to Find Uptown's First—and Only—Curbside Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger
Uptown's first curbside EV charger is in Washington Heights.

Upper Manhattan just got its first publicly accessible electric vehicle (EV) charger courtesy of the city.


The new curbside charging port—installed by NYC's Department of Transportation as part of a pilot program in partnership with Con Edison—is located on the west side of Fort Washington Avenue between W 164th and W 165th Streets, right by New York–Presbyterian Hospital.


Eighty chargers have been installed so far across the city, with a total of 120 planned.


Like all of the other chargers in the network, the one in Washington Heights is a Level 2 that uses 240v and provides up to 20 miles of range per hour of charging.


It comes with a standard SAE J1772 connector that is compatible with most EVs (Tesla owners can use them with an adapter).


The cost "will be competitive with the cost of gasoline for non-EVs," according to a release from DOT.
