New York Stock market opening
February 13, 2023
Earlier this week, Manhattan Borough Commissioner John Raine, Deputy Borough Commissioner I-Ju Chen, and Assistant Plan Examiner Nicholas Katsarelis, were at the New York Stock Exchange to ring the stock market opening bell. Members of our Manhattan Borough Office and Senior Staff were on hand to celebrate the recently completed Podium Accessibility Project at the stock exchange, which now allows wheelchair users to comfortably reach the trading floor balcony for the first time.
We applaud NYSE for being bullish on the issue of accessibility, and we were proud to work with them on planning and approvals to get this job done. Its common knowledge that accessibility projects are a blue-chip investment that pays dividends.
