4 New England Cities Are The Worst Rated For People With Disabilities
Mostly everywhere we go these days have accommodations for people with disabilities, due to the People with Disabilities Act of 1990. But some New England cities are falling short.
Worcester, Mass. has a few good things going for it. It's home to many famous people: Dennis Leary, Erik Per Sullivan and some wrestler named Carmella. And, it has those cool looking buildings like this one....
Okay, that's not the building I was thinking about - that's some sort of chicken coop train thing.... ANYWAY, Worcester apparently is NOT the place to go if you are disabled. It got the 10th worst city in the country for people with disabilities, according to WalletHub.
At least it's not as bad as New Haven and Bridgeport, CT or Providence Rhode Island.
WalletHub based their findings on the following:
