    The supercharger site in West Nyack, NY, is well underway. Near completion, perhaps. It is located in the Palisades Center parking lot parallel to Rt. 59 (across from Dunkin‘ Donuts), at the far end of the mall parking lot approximately across from The Cheesecake Factory. All of the kiosks appear to be installed at this point so it shouldn’t be long now.

    i was just there last week scratching my head wondering why there were no chargers. Those are going to be some busy stalls.

    before everyone declares victory, look for the transformer. If it's not there, its going to be a wait for the power company.

    I’ll try to get better photos. The delivery trucks were blocking my view.

    Are those not the white cabinets at the end? Based on number of cabinets and spacing of stalls to estimate the ones hidden behind the trucks, I estimate 20.

    Transformer is not white cabinet. Transformer is usually green, and provided by power company. It's one box, or sometimes 3 pot-cans on the "telephone pole" (power pole).

    So I just drove alongside again and verified 20 stalls (supercharger.info: please update) and that the green transformer is installed.

    Alas, I don't think those green boxes are a transformer. They are switchgear most likely. Transformer has heat sinks, and is usually low and squat.

    This is great news. I live on the NY/NJ border and go there all the time. Heck, I used to work there on college break!

    Update as of 12/13 9:00am:

    Looks like at least a few days still to go. They are currently moving down the row of stalls (about 1/3 done since yesterday), using a long orange contraption to run cabling from each kiosk to cabling previously laid parallel to the curb (which apparently runs to the white cabinets). They have already wired up the green distribution center cabinet to a concrete platform where the transformer will go (cables are just hanging out of conduits in the platform right now).

    Are they keeping the Tarrytown charger that's across the bridge?

    i wouldnt see why not. This should be for the Tesla shoppers. Ive once drove around the malls lot and counted the parked Telsa's (out of boredom waiting for the wife) and counted about 28 and im sure there was more.

Still need the transformer and light posts. 10 of the 20 spots have signs “Tesla vehicle charging only” but the other 10 allow general parking with a 30 minute limit. That is confusing and could lead to abuse from our ICE car driving friends. Luckily these chargers are far away from the mall entry so the spots are not desirable for regular parking. Also the mall has an underground parking garage with lots of additional space. Parking is only an issue on the super busy holiday shopping days.

    When I stopped by today, they were planting shrubs around the transformer and cabinet site for some camouflage. I guess everything will be ready to go once the transformer is finally in place. Anyone chat with a worker to ask if there’s an anticipated date?
