The NY case addressed a similar issue in Hubbard v. Samson Management Co. as the court stated:

If "they were required to supply free, reserved parking for Hubbard, they might be similarly required to provide parking near the apartment of every handicapped tenant in the complex. If the current allocation of parking spaces disadvantages handicapped tenants, then Samson might indeed be required to allocate parking so as to assure handicapped tenants an opportunity equal to that of their nonhandicapped neighbors to use and enjoy their dwelling" so based on such language the parking spaces would need to be comparable.
