"Victor Calise, 43, rides his handcycle through @centralparknyc every Sunday morning. Victor, who is commissioner of the Mayor's Office for People With Disabilities in New York City, has been using a wheelchair since 1994, when a mountain biking accident left him paralyzed from the waist down. He has been working with @nycparks to help bring the city's parks, beaches and recreational facilities into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. "Accessibility affects everyone," he told @nyitmes. "People with strollers, people with aging parents." @cassandragiraldo photographed Victor with his daughter Lola, 10, in #CentralPark."
