Acting Commissioner Margaret ForgioneFrom the First Deputy Commissioner: New York City has more than 12,750 miles of sidewalk and over 185,000 corners, one of the largest and most complex street networks in the world. DOT strives to make all its programs and services within this network accessible for all users, particularly aging New Yorkers and persons with disabilities. I invite you to learn more about the Pedestrian Ramp Program from the resources provided on our site, and contact us with any concerns or questions. –Margaret Forgione
