As a community center whose mission is to provide services to the entire community, 92Y makes every endeavor to make its programs and events accessible.
The 92nd Street building covers one city block and consists of two joined buildings.
Mobility Bound Patrons
Curb ramps are located on 91st and 92nd Street. The main entrance at 92nd Street and Lexington is ramped for the mobility bound, and the secondary entrance on 91st Street has an entrance at street level. There are elevators in both buildings that go to all floors.
Kaufmann Concert Hall, Buttenwieser Hall and Warburg Lounge are all equipped with wheelchair seating locations. When ordering tickets, please inform the Customer Service (phone: 212.415.5500 / email) that you will require a wheelchair seat and specify how many (if any) companions are in your party. The Box Office is equipped with an accessible counter. Accessible restrooms, water fountain and telephone are available on the lower level.
Assistive Listening Devices
Kaufmann Concert Hall is equipped with Williams Sound systems for the hearing impaired. Operating on an FM signal, the system provides a clean sound with no static or dead spots. Headsets are free and may be picked up at the coat check with deposit of a driver's license or major credit card. Buttenwieser Hall is equipped with the Sennheiser infrared system that uses an emitter with infrared signal.
All elevators have Braille/raised lettering, as does signage in the foyer of Kaufmann Concert Hall.
