“I don’t think the 450 additional charging stations are enough for a state the size of New York.  I think that once electric vehicle penetration rates are higher, the state will need many more charging stations.  However, I do think this is a start, and a move in the right direction.

A good example of this is a new plan by Michael Bloomberg, New York City's mayor, to add 10,000 public parking spots for electric vehicles over the next 7 years (note that because of the way it's worded, I believe that this doesn't mean 10,000 charging stations, but rather that a station with 4 charging ports would count as 4 EV parking spots).
