Handicapped man sues landlord over entrances

One handicapped man is taking legal action against his landlord in response to a lack of handicap accessible entrances.

John Rose says he has been asked to use the side door to access his Co-op City apartment building. While the side door is handicap accessible, it lacks a security camera, unlike the other entrances, and Rose fears he might be alone, stuck and unable to get assistance. Rose says he took Riverbay Management to court and claims Co-op City was fined more than $100,000, with $51,000 to be his. The New York City Commission of Human Rights also ordered the company to install automatic doors. Riverbay Management says it appealed the ruling, while Rose says that he plans to take the management company back to court.
