Note: The City Bar's sidewalk wheelchair lift will not be operable beginning Thursday, July 8, 2021, for approximately 5-6 weeks, due to scaffolding required for repair work on the building.
The New York City Bar Association's building is ADA accessible by use of our sidewalk wheelchair lift located at the 42 West 44th Street entrance. The lift's maximum capacity is 550 lbs.
Our front desk staff is always available to provide assistance. The front desk staff can be reached by pushing the intercom button located at the wheelchair lift panel on 44th street or by calling the front desk directly at 212-382-6694.
Our building is also ADA accessible via the Bar Building, located next door at 36 West 44th Street, by taking the elevator to the second floor. Once there, press the button on the intercom to notify the front desk and gain entrance.
