Accessibility With Every Slice
The Disabled Parking situation in the block going east from Indiana on 16th is borderline inadequate. There is a pay to park lot on the south that has two Disabled spots and there are two free spots near that lot. At that spot there is great accessibility. On the north, at the other end of the block, there is an access aisle with two spots on each side but they are not designated as Disable spots. The intersection at 16th and Indiana has accessible sidewalk ramps and cut outs and crosswalks. Luckily, the free Disabled spots on the south are close to the Empire.
When you see the large pink elephant, you know you are there. The front door was reasonably accessible but too narrow. There are accessible tables close to the door. Unfortunately, those tables are very close to the speakers. It's a little crowded and a lot loud. The restroom was accessible with grab rails and proper handle. And I just love moveable tp containers.
All in all, a little slice of Accessibility Heaven. But, ohhhh, it's so loud.
