    Looks like Erwin/Corning is going to fill a big NY Southern tier hole. Looking at the map it seems Olean, Ellicottville, or Salamanca would be the next (and final?) BIG hole to fill along the 86 corredor.

    What are peoples thoughts on this - general and specific?

    In the long run the gap needs to be filled but exactly where probably is not crucial. I'm slightly partial to Olean for reasons that go back many, many years, and have nothing to do with Tesla.;)

    Salamanca, NY I think. But Carrolton, NY would also be OK. Anything that's I-86/US-219 would cover travel multiple directions.
    Doesn't look like there's much there though. It's Tesla's big challenge in those areas.

    I would think the Seneca Allegany Resort and Casino in Salamanca would be the perfect spot, right off I-86. Barring that, I vote for the parking lot of Beef n Barrel in Allegany, for some good "beef on weck" as you charge!

    I passed through Salamanca yesterday and spent a few minutes scouting. No sign of supercharger construction at the casino, Holiday Inn Express, or other establishments on Broad St. I went down to Tim Horton's and circled back.

    I may have been a little early for "Target opening by end of 2018".
