My son is looking to move to NYC and needs wheelchair accessible housing which would include the kitchen and bathroom. Has anyone had any luck finding such a place? Thank you.

They're out there but will be hard to find, as most buildings were completed before the ADA act.

Maybe this website can guide you in the right direction:

Most new buildings are put up with several apartments to accomodate wheelchairs, often on every floor. This means that all halls and doorways are wide and that kitchens and bathrooms especially so.

(My last building, circa 1987, had 2 such apartments out of 15 per floor.)

Rarely some will have lowered sinks.

Thank you for your responses. I am finding that this will will be a tough search from 6 hrs away, especially in his price range (new grad). I will definitely post successes as I find them to help others with their search.
