Yeah what do you mean by "more accessible"?

More flights in/out?
Ease of travel from airports to city center?
Less traffic congestion?
More intercity trains in/out?
Better transit system?
More wheelchair ramps?
More sidewalks?

Yeah, if you're talking transit, there's no contest. NY-NJ-CT by a light year.

It depends on what you're looking for: quantity or niceness?

NYC's system is fast, convenient, and it's all over the place...but that said, the subways can get really dingy and dirty. Public trans in DC is still pretty common, it's just not as much of a big deal...and, IMO, it's much nicer.

I think people tend to exaggerate how filthy the subway can be. The trains themselves are usually not that dirty at all and the stations aren't TOO bad most of the time. I think the major problem with the stations is the accumulated grime and mold. But anyway, the OP said "accessibility", so I don't think he was referring to "niceness" anyway.

NY-NJ-CT definitely. Metro-North is, I believe, the largest and most used commuter rail in the US. Even if we were talking about flights, location, etc. I still would say NY-NJ-CT takes the lead.

I think because of it's dense population, the tri-state is the most accessible metro-area in the nation, and possibly the world.
