In search of....curb cuts?

In this video, Wheelchair Kamikaze, our host of past NY tours, goes in search of the Spirit of Audrey Hepburn statue in New York. However, he winds up spending quite a bit of his ride through NY city looking for curb cuts and facing some mighty big trucks head on....

I love these videos. This is archetypical NYC and I love the running commentary. I tend to think curb cuts or the lack thereof are a neighborhood phenomenon. The Upper West Side is great, the area around the U.N and Midtown in general is hit and miss. I often go long distances in my wheelchair in the city and often find myself in the street. Only once did I ever get worried, a bus almost hit me, but I was saved by a Michel Barsishnikov (excuse the spelling) who flagged down the bus driver for me. Onl in NY does this happen.
