Hurricane Sandy: AT&T Offers Free Mobile Charging Stations in NYC

November 3, 2012 1 Comment



This afternoon and looking into the weekend, AT&T is continuing to step up their relief efforts, especially in the areas in New York most affected by the storm.

Over the next few days, AT&T will have charging stations at all thirteen NYC-run food and water distribution centers in Manhattan, Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn.
  • Manhattan’s Lower East Side is still-dark and hard-hit.  Downtowners can
    charge up at the Hamilton Fish playground on East Houston and Pitt Streets
  • The second Manhattan location will be live at 413 Grand Street, at Clinton
  • Rockaway Beach is one of the hardest hit areas in NYC, and AT&T’s first
    charging station in Queens is live at Hammel Playground, 84th and Rockaway Beach
  • Coney Islanders can charge up courtesy of AT&T at Surf Avenue
    Playground, Surf Avenue and West 25th Street.
Staten Island:
  • In order to continue to deploy key AT&T assets where they are needed the
    most a Cell On Light Truck or COLT – essentially a mobile base station that is a
    crucial part of comprehensive disaster recovery – will be deployed to Staten
    Island’s devastated South Beach, on Father Capadanno Boulevard, in order to
    provide immediate wireless coverage to those most affected.
New Yorkers can also charge up in any AT&T store – and, as of this evening, 100 are open – with 36 more to reopen in the coming days.
As a further gesture of commitment to the recovery effort underway up and down the Eastern seaboard, AT&T has also made a $250,000 relief grant to the American Red Cross, which will be spread among the four hardest hit states: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
