Pols announce federal funding for e-bike charging stations outside NYCHA buildings


The Big Apple’s public housing buildings will receive e-bike charging and storage stations thanks to a new federal grant, Mayor Eric Adams, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced Sunday.

The trio publicized the new $25 million measure outside of the Baruch Houses in Lower Manhattan on June 25. Through this new lithium-ion battery safety effort, they say some 173 electric mobility charging and storage stations will be installed outside of more than 50 New York City Housing Authority residences across the five boroughs.
