Wheelchair user forced to crawl up 2 flights of stairs at subway station

Another adventure on NYC thanks to how unpredictable our subway system is here, myself, my partner and my service dog were told that the subway at Queensboro Plaza that we normally take into Manhattan was not running, but of course that wasn’t revealed until we got there. We were assured that there would be a fully wheelchair accessible trip if we stayed on the 7 train to Grand Central and then took the 4 to Union Sq. Sure we got to Union Square ok but then found there were no elevators from the platform to where the elevators to the street level existed. nice! So off I went, with Ella carrying my chair and walking the service dog… I pushed myself by my arms up two sets of stairs.

Congrats MTA

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
