New York City is providing public places to recharge dying phones and other mobile devices ["25 charging stations being placed in parks," News, June 19]. We should have these in Nassau and Suffolk counties, too.

Cellphones can be charged in motor vehicles, but not all cellphone users have motor vehicles, especially seniors.
