AXSmap is a suite of tools that aims to engage communities to share resources, map accessibility and build landscapes to accommodate people with disabilities, ultimately creating freedom from barriers of the built environment.
“I have been living in New York City’s East Village for about 10 years. I first moved to New York to be an independent filmmaker and for a while, I enjoyed a fantastic quality of life exploring the City, using the subway and going to coffee shops, bars, and restaurants.”

Now I’m using a motorized scooter and New York is not the city I knew and loved; barriers abound, options are limited. Only a handful of buildings are accessible.
