Hi guys. I'm new to this forum, and just read through this thread. I drive a Bolt and live in Syracuse. Here's a few things I've dug up about infrastructure in upstate NY.
The EA station is Herkimer is at the Denny's, not the WalMart. The site started construction in December, and is practically finished. It appears to be only waiting on the grid connection before going live.
Also, EA has cycle 1 plans for Syracuse, somewhere near the intersection of I-90 and I-481. I've been scouting the area, and have seen no signs of construction yet. I assume they have picked a location and will begin construction once spring arrives. Cycle 2 will not add an EA station in Syracuse, but will add two between Syracuse and Philly. That's a span of about 250 miles. I expect them to be spaced about 80-100 miles apart. Which means technically they both may end up in Pennsylvania.
There is also an Adirondack Welcome Center in Lake George with two 100A QCs. It is accessible from I-87 northbound.
Infrastructure is starting to accelerate, which is exciting to see after many years of nothing!
