    it’s funny that the picture you show of a woman using a wheelchair in her apartment is from an old article about lack of accessible housing in NYC for people who are physically disabled. The woman in question had a lot of difficulties using her apartment although it was supposed to be designed for disabled people.

      Hi Shannon,
      That’s an old post, and to be honest we searched for pictures on Internet to illustrate it. I had no idea about the story you’re telling us. I think I’ll remove the picture!
