Agreement reached to provide handicap access to shopping center parking

NEW YORK – An agreement has been reached between State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Vornado Realty Corporation that will ensure that persons with disabilities are provided equal access to parking lots and garages at 20 shopping centers in New York owned by the company.

Two of those facilities are in the Hudson Valley – at the South Hills Mall in the Town of Poughkeepsie and in Mount Kisco.

The settlement requires that the facilities are upgraded so they comply with requirements and design standards set forth in the federal Americans with Disabilities Act, so those with disabilities have access to the goods and services that are available at those centers.

Five on the centers are in New York City, six are on Long Island and others are located in Albany, Broome, Dutchess, Erie, Monroe, Onondaga and Westchester counties.
