I am trying to convince my mobility-impaired other half that we need a trip to NYC and that it will be easiest if he brings a wheel chair for a ride/walk visit. He CAN walk and manage stairs and we manage around home using this technique ... even in old theaters. I am able to manage an empty chair at times when walking is a must
But here's my somewhat sensitive question ... our home subway system is very old and only some stations have elevators. And some of those elevators, specifically the smaller ones that are not "glass" are disgusting. People use them as bathrooms and although they are regularly cleaned the disinfectant scent on top of lingering odors makes even the shortest rides unbearable.
It is only in the last couple of months that I have actually used a subway elevator At home and am wondering if anybody has actually used any of the NYC subway elevators. I think I remember using a very large one at AtlanticAve stop in Brooklyn when directed there by a kind soul helping me find the right exit. But that's it.
Does anybody else have experience?
