Fairness Hearing: CIDNY, et al v. City of New York

September 4 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Please note that this hearing was originally scheduled for Tuesday July 31, but has been rescheduled to Tuesday September 4.

Location: United States District Court of the Southern District of NY; 500 Pearl Street, Courtroom 11A, Before Hon. George Daniels, New York, NY 10007

New York City’s sidewalks and pedestrian routes are dangerous and difficult to navigate for persons with disabilities.   Hazards include frequent pedestrian crossings lacking curb ramps as well as existing ones that are broken or too steep. Wheelchairs users often must change travel plans in order to avoid whole areas with inaccessible streetscapes, and blind and low-vision pedestrians often have no warning that they are about the leave the sidewalk and enter the path of traffic.

After nearly four years, DRA and the city have reached a settlement agreement, creating a plan to make the city safer for people with disabilities. We invite community members to join us to show your support for this settlement agreement!

Please bring a valid photo I.D. with you and arrive early as you will have to follow the Court’s security protocol.

Accessibility details: The accessible entrance is located between Worth and Baxter Street.
