Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced an agreement with Pyramid Management Group LLC, the largest privately owned shopping center owner and developer in the Northeast, to ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided equal access to the indoor and outdoor common areas at its twelve shopping malls in New York.
“Many New Yorkers with disabilities find it difficult to access shopping malls because of architectural barriers,” said Attorney General Schneiderman. “My office has made it a priority to remove these barriers, and to help ensure that all New Yorkers have the access they need to live full and independent lives.”
Pyramid operates twelve large shopping malls across New York State, including Destiny USA in Syracuse, New York, the largest shopping mall in New York. The Attorney General’s investigation of Pyramid was part of an ongoing initiative to ensure accessibility at shopping malls and shopping centers across New York State. In the spring of 2014, the Attorney General entered into agreements with Vornado Realty Corporation and Kimco Realty Corp. Those agreements require over fifty shopping centers to comply with accessibility requirements.
