Ah, there is nothing quite like the feeling of hitting the beach each summer as you want to get away from it all – the stress at the office, the traffic gridlock to go to work and back, the entire shebang literally. Well, in this day and age, you might want to make sure that your gadgets are fully juiced up before you head to the beach, since writing down phone numbers on paper napkins are so passé. AT&T has got your back covered just in case your iPhone’s running out of juice, as they expand their Street Charge initiative (which we first talked about back in the middle of June 2013) to some of New York City’s most popular beaches this week.
Those living in the Big Apple will be able to take advantage of the AT&T Street Charge initiative that can be seen at Coney Island, Rockaway, Brighton and Manhattan Beaches, where these are eight of the new locations around the city to receive solar mobile charging units. The other locations include Hudson River Park, Rumsey Playfield in Central Park, Orchard Beach, Piers 1 and 5 at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Union Square Park, and Governor’s Island. [Press Release]
