    need suggestions for upcoming NYC trip...

    good day my fellow traveling wheelers...

    I'm planning a trip to NYC for my friend's wedding from April 11 to April 19th and can really use some suggestions...

    I'm c 6/7 quad, regular chair width, 29" i think, as long as I can get in the bathroom, I'm pretty good and I use a transfer board to transfer

    Where is a good place to stay around the Jericho area that's accessible and reasonable price?

    I thought about subletting someone's place... has anyone done that before? where did you look?

    thank you for your help!

    Hi CHina Doll..have you tried Airbnb?

    There is a accessible feature selection.

    there is also the vacation rental sites.

    do a search accessible rental in " "NY and you may get some listings that are actually accessible..though most have no idea what that means.

    Have fun!

    If you are talking about Jericho, LI that might be a place where your van or accessible car would come in handy. In Manhattan, it is nearly impossible to find accessible parking on the streets at times but maybe not so in Long Island. You could locate a hotel there w accessible parking and then have the option of using your vehicle should you choose to do so. My impression is that accessible taxi availability is problematic in NY in general. If you travel to the wedding by air I feel you may wind up isolated unless your friends and family there could give you a lot of help w transportation. Have fun!
