I work with someone whose wife has MS and he’s mentioned in the past how NYC is so not wheelchair-friendly. His wife has to motor a few blocks sometimes to find a sidewalk with a ramp. I kind of couldn’t relate so it didn’t mean anything, but now that I’m slowly re-entering society with the aid of a kick-arse stroller (borrowed through a friend of friend. People are so generous!), I’m finding the sidewalks challenging, restaurants too narrow, etc. I have yet to attempt the subway system, but there’re only a few with elevators, and the whole thing just surprises me. I just thought by now the city would have its act together. Sort of seems very 80s to not be handicapped friendly.
