The Metropolitan Transit Authority has gotten a lot of flack over the past year because of the infrastructure, delays, and costs of upkeeping a transit system
for the city that never sleeps. The New York City subway system is the most expansive 24-hour service in the world, but one that has gotten a reputation for its untimeliness
and sweltering temperatures
In addition to these problems, for mobility impaired New Yorkers many subway stations are inaccessible
, according to analysis by office of the New York City Comptroller This also poses a problem for families with small children, who must carry their children in strollers or upstairs. By borough, Brooklyn is home to the highest share of inaccessible subway stations while Manhattan has the lowest share of inaccessible subway stations.
