General NYC Accessibility Information
If you are planning to visit NYC, modern hotels would have more accessibility features than older, landmark hotels. Although, some landmark hotels may have updated their facilities to have internet access in rooms and other amenities; so its best to contact them and ask.
If you are getting around NYC soley by bus and have not bought a Metrocard, you or your PCA must have $5.00 worth of US coins (no pennies) per person for your trip to and from where ever you are going. The bus fare unit does not take bills or credit/debit cards, nor will the bus driver give you change. Make sure to ask the driver for a tranfer/s (it is usually a blue and white cardboard card) as you and/or your PCA board the bus. Each transfer has a smartchip in it and is only good for 2 hours after you receive it.
New York City recently created a 107 page accessibility guide, featuring all sorts of attractions with amenities, It is a pdf file you can download. The restaurant listing is from pages 80 - 90, but believe it or not, not all of the restaurants listed are 100% wheelchair accessible. NYC's Accessibility Guide.
