Wheelchair in New York?

Hi, I am 46-year old man with MS from Helsinki (Finland, Scandinavia) and I am planning to make trip with my wife (not MS) to New York City next may.
I can still walk about 1-300 meters, but I prefer wheelchair on a longer distances.
We could rent an appartment which is located in Harlem 125. street Manhattan.
I'd appreciate any information, hints or links somebody could give me about using subway or buses etc.? ...

oh great. to add to my list of fun things to deal with, now i have a staphylococcus aureus infection. it's hard to research because it's normally hanging out on us anyway, and also because of the food-poisoning and methicillin resistant blabbedy-blah all over google. the connection i've found so far: neutrophil leukocytes. but i don't understand, and i'm tired of trying to figure it all out. is this what has been screwing up my ...

It is starting to affect my speech now, I am starting to notice that its getting hard to pronounce words, slurred speech would be a good way to describe it, I’m glad that it has decided to hit my voice and not my arms or eyes because they still are working pretty good.

I moved some stuff around yesterday. Nothing big or anything, and I went real slow. Today I’m really ill with fatigue. It’s days like this that scare me. I tell myself it’s OK to do this now and then. I want to stay as active as I can to retain some stamina but the price is getting high. I’ll probably be down for a couple of days now. Maybe I’ll catch ...
