|View from the top - church exterior entrance|
It's been two years since I've been attending OLQM and only until recently (about 3 months ago) has a ramp been installed for parishioners (who I have to assume) are wheelchair-bound. Since the install, I often was sought out to assist in carrying one particular parishioner up and down the staircase which leads to the entrance of the church, who is in a wheelchair and has a small frame (she likely weighs less than her chair and is no more than four feet tall).
Why did I chose this environment? Well, the design is quite a spectacle (and I doubt it was cleared as ADA compliant).

2. The floor is carpeted. No sort of surface area gives grip.
3. It's a cave as well as a basement. Anyone who is five feet tall can't get their head by that ceiling without ducking.
4. Without the sunlight, it can be on the dark side.
On a related note... My wife took this pic one morning on her way to work. Very interesting. She wrote, "Just noticed this. MTA posted this where the ramp was both steep and had no grip.")
