    We're thinking about making the drive from Seattle to Brooklyn to visit our son and grandsons. We would probably be there for a couple of weeks, staying in an Airbnb apartment that is unlikely to have charging. Nrg EVgo has a CHAdeMO station at the Walgreen's on Prospect Ave., not far from where my son lives. Does anyone have experience with this station? Will it be usable with the Tesla CHAdeMO adapter (I didn't see any Tesla comments on PlugShare)? How fast is it?

    Any other suggestions of where to charge in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn? FWIW, I have a long extension cord, a prodigious collection of adapters, and twin chargers on my Model S. And of course I have the CHAdeMO adapter. I'm not real crazy about leaving the car outside overnight, so a garage with reasonable charging would also be of interest.

    Your first hurdle is a gap in the Superchargers in Idaho or Wyoming, depending on which route you take to New York.

    Thanks, all. Yes, I had consulted PlugShare, but I had not scrolled through all the photos for the Brooklyn listing, and hadn't seen the Model S. Hat tip to Oba for that. I do believe that the gap in Wyoming has finally been closed with the opening of the Gillette supercharger. That's what led me to think about this in the first place. I've taken many trips up and down the west coast, including a few before there were ANY superchargers, so I'm pretty confident about getting there. But a quick charger within walking distance of where I'll be staying would be convenient.

    Thanks. It's not too late -- I probably won't be doing this until next fall.

    I really really wish there were more charging stations in Brooklyn.
