Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

It is not a good city for people with disabilities. There are no sidewalks in the city, no ramps; you can never walk anywhere without risking your life with local traffic; very sad. - Sep 20, 2016
Hmmm...probably. Most places have elevators, but they are tiny. There are no sidewalks, and smaller restaurants/stores will not have a wheelchair ramp. - Mar 16, 2015
In many places there aren't any sidewalks. In places that do have sidewalks, they're somewhat in disrepair. - Jan 18, 2015
Very much so. Accessibility is not a priority. - Nov 20, 2014
Tons. Even an able-bodied person has trouble walking here in the city. There are basically no sidewalks. And the places that have sidewalks are covered with unmentionables. - Jul 18, 2014
There is no accommodation made for people with physical disabilities. Walking on the street is hard enough for people who are perfectly able. - Mar 2, 2012
This city is not handicapped-accessible. Many buildings do have elevators, but you have to climb stairs to get into the buildings. - Feb 27, 2012
There are no accommodations made (outside of the consulate) for people with disabilities, even in the newest and most modern buildings. - Jan 11, 2011
