  • Electric Car Charging is now available at Rapid!

    Congratulations to our location at 25-27 Beekman street! We have now installed a Car Charging station for Electric Cars!

     

    The news has hit NASDAQ:

    "

    MIAMI BEACH, Fla. and NEW YORK, May 31, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCBB:CCGI) today announced availability of its electric vehicle charging services at the Rapid Park garage at 25 Beekman Street, near the financial district and South Street Seaport  in New York City, NY. EV drivers in lower Manhattan can now quickly and easily recharge their EVs at the Rapid Park facility, which is in close proximity to Pace University and New York Downtown Hospital.

    "With a growing number of people driving EVs, we wanted to provide our customers the convenience and reassurance of recharging while at work or enjoying the many restaurants at nearby South Street Seaport," said Kevin Wolf, Rapid Park Regional Director. "Working with CarCharging to provide EV charging services as a shareable amenity, we can now offer Rapid Park's EV customers the ability to park and rapidly recharge their electric vehicle in one location."

    CarCharging provides EV charging services using a Coulomb Technologies EV fast charging station, known as Level II, which provides 240 volts with 32 amps of power to quickly refuel an EV's battery. EV charging stations utilize the standard SAE J1772™ connector widely adopted by nearly all automobile manufacturers.

    EV drivers can easily register and create a CarCharging account online, and attach a small card to their keychain to initiate use and payment at any intelligent CarCharging station. The CarCharging keychain card also allows drivers to use charging locations on the ChargePoint® Network. CarCharging also accepts direct payment via credit card.

    Users can pinpoint EV charging station locations using the CarCharging map at http://www.carcharging.com/. The ChargePoint® mobile application also provides real-time charging station locations with turn-by-turn directions. Drivers will soon be able to reserve a time slot, guaranteeing access to EV charging stations to recharge their electric vehicle. 

    Electric vehicles already on the market include the Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, BMW ActiveE, Ford Focus Electric, Fisker Karma and Tesla Model S. Additional electric vehicle models are expected to be available later this year.

    The 11th Tribeca Film Festival will take place on April 18 - April 29,
    2012. The mission of the Tribeca Film Festival is "to enable the
    international film community and the general public to experience the
    power of film by redefining the film festival experience."  Your

    1,500 screenings as well as a hundreds of thousands of attendees. Back
    then, if you looked hard enough you could find a parking space. Well,
    the festival now draws an estimated three million people — including
    often-elusive celebrities from the worlds of art, film, and music —
    and generates $600 million annually and a parking spot is next to

  • Rapid Parking for The Tribeca Film Festival

    The Tribeca Film Festival  was founded in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Jane
    Rosenthal,  and Craig Hatkoff in response to the September 11, 2001
    attacks on the World Trade Center.
    These attacks created a great loss to vitality in the TriBeCa
    neighborhood in Lower Manhattan
    The festival now draws an estimated three million people — including
    often-elusive celebrities from the worlds of art, film, and music and
    it is vitually impossible to find rapid parking in the area of the The

    Tomorrow - Tue 11am–6pm. Ending: Sat Mar 31 11am–6pm

    2555 Richmond Ave
    at Ring Rd, Staten Island New York, NY

    Fishes Eddy a kitschy kitchen supply store is running a sale for the
    next few weeks in their stire in Staten Island. The way to make this
    Work is to get some rapid parking. First thing is to park near the
    Holland Tunnel and do some Chinatown Shopping.
    The Holland Tunnel is a miracle of engineering. A highway tunnel that
    runs under the Hudson River it connects the island of Manhattan in New
    York City with Jersey City, New Jersey.  It is one of the few American
    public works project,  not named for a local hero, politician, or
    government official. Most people assume it is named after the country
    Holland but actually it is named  for its first chief engineer.
    Originally The tunnel was originally known as the Hudson River
    Vehicular Tunnel or the Canal Street Tunnel and the first of two
    automobile tunnels built under the river, the second being the Lincoln
    Tunnel. So you bring your car to RapiD PARK AT 44 ELIZABETH ST
    Just a few blocks east of the tunnel is Chinatown. If you like
    discount handbags, t-shirts, perfume, and other souvenirs you can do
    no better than to shop in Chinatown especially aorund Canal and
    Elizabeth Street.
    It.s just a mile or less to the Staten Island Ferry for  a free boat
    ride to  blowout: The kitschy kitchen store is unloading 25 years'
    worth of flatware, glassware and fine china left over from the Union
    Square shop. Take home 12-inch serving platters (usually $13);
    circus-themed glasses (normally $6 each); and colorful mugs (retail $5
    each) all for just $1 apiece. Head over on Sunday, February 26 to
    catch Mario Batali signing his new cookbook (1pm).
