To the XCAPEPOD!
According to PlugShare there are many public J1772 plugs available in the NY area. You might need to be a member of a network for some of them (e.g., Blink or ChargePoint), but you can find free ones around at parks, stores, etc. In WV, for example, all of our state parks with lodges have J1772 and Tesla Destination chargers that are free for visitors.so basically we are screwed LOL. No public charging stations in the NYC area
Having the Tesla Destination adapter (not for Superchargers of course) is handy and gives you more options. I know a Bolt owner with one that uses it regularly.
