Twenty-five solar charging stations for mobile devices are coming to city parks, beaches, golf courses and other outdoor spaces this summer, courtesy of AT&T.
The "Street Charge" kiosks are already available in Riverside Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Fort Greene Park and will be installed elsewhere across the five boroughs in the coming months.
The charging stations were designed by Pensa, a design firm based in DUMBO. The solar technology comes from Goal Zero.
