    Thank you. Looks like a good location. Much better than Wantagh.

    What’s wrong with Wantagh? The purpose of Superchargers is to be close to major highways, to facilitate long distance travel. Copiague will be on Sunrise Highway, near Rte.110. Wantagh could have been on Sunrise Highway between Wantagh Parkway and Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway. In that regard, the Wantagh location wins, big time.

    I've driven around the area and looked on Google maps...I can't find any large shopping centers in the area that can fit chargers that won't be immediately ICE'd. Unless you want them at Jones Beach...

    SCs are not always around shopping centers, let alone “large” ones. JFK Airport and the superchargers (now dismantled) at the Syosett Service Center are two cases in point. At any rate, when Tesla mentioned Wantagh as a location, several years ago now, I am assuming that they had one or two physical locations in mind. I can think of a few places that would work. If ICEing became an issue, it would just have to be enforced. Depending on signage, it can be a ticketable offense. BTW, I have no problem with the Copiague location, it just doesn’t follow the normal reasoning for SC locations.

    @ZBayChris well, Syosset is closed, and JFK is difficult. Outside of that, all the other ones on Long Island are at shopping areas or a restaurant. The idea is for you to have somewhere to go while you wait.

    Anyway, another reason why this is could replace Wantagh is bc the current Plainview SC was always listed as Hicksville. A good 10 minute away. The Hicksville coming soon then disappeared.
