Pedestrian ramps (legal curb cuts at street corners) will be installed in 2015 at two Windsor Terrace intersections: (1) Greenwood Avenue and E. 2nd Street and (2) Vanderbilt Street and 20th Street.

The Americans with Disabilities Act requires the installation of a ramp where a pedestrian walkway crosses a curb. These pedestrian ramps are intended to remove barriers and make traveling less difficult for New Yorkers with disabilities, especially wheelchair users.

At a crosswalk, whether it's marked or not, vehicles aren't permitted to stand or park alongside a pedestrian ramp or obstruct it in a way that prevents access for persons with disabilities--unless a posted sign, marking, other traffic control device, or law enforcement officer says otherwise.
