Accessible Travel: Getting Around NYC In A Wheelchair by Jackie Williamson

June 15, 2018

With its racing traffic and bustling streets, New York City can seem overwhelming to any visitor — and even more so when you’re in a wheelchair. But, don’t fret! You’ll be surprised to discover just how wheelchair-friendly NYC actually is. For example, recent disability laws require NYC taxis to always stop for wheelchair users, Ability magazine reports. With adequate research and preparation, you’ll be able to take full advantage of all this wonderful city has to offer. Here are just a few of the places accessible to wheelchair users in NYC:

·   Most streets (especially in touristy areas)

·   Most popular attractions

·   City tours (like, Big Apple Greeter)

·   Broadway theaters

·   Certain subway stations have elevators and accessibility ramps

Lastly, although it’s certainly possible to get around NYC in a wheelchair on your own, it’ll be so much easier — and more fun — if you get a friend to go with you. Check out this comprehensive guide if you want more tips and ideas for getting around NYC
