Disability Access Inadequate

You can report non-complying egress, parking facilities, and bathrooms that do not meet local requirements for accessibility for people with disabilities.

Buildings that were built before 1987 are exempt from the law governing accessibility for people with disabilities (Local Law 58/1987). They must follow the law if renovations or alterations made on the building after 1987 cost more than half of the building's replacement value.

The New York City Commission's Human Rights Law requires that reasonable accommodations be made to all residential buildings and public spaces to make them accessible to people with disabilities. These reasonable accommodations cannot pose an undue hardship to the building owner. Reasonable accommodations often involve architectural modifications, including ramps, electronic doors, or handrails. The Human Rights Law does not consider the age of the building in requiring modifications.
