Just curious. I live in the DFW area and there don't seem to be alot of Deaf/HoH groups (maybe I don't know where to look). Are there any cities that people find to be better than others?

Rochester, New York is considered to be the most deaf friendly city in the United States.

Indianapolis, IN is one of these cities. At least, I would like to think so.

Rochester is most deaf friendly city. Almost hearing people know ASL for working business stores, restaurants and some services in Rochester to communicate with deaf customers. I was former RIT student but I dislike to live there because reason of colder weather.

Dallas/Fort Worth is horrible and too wide. Everybody complain it's too far to go around. Sheesh. Otherwise, Austin is pretty awesome.

Hey, what's wrong with Boston, Massachusetts??? :giggle:

Deaf people from Rochester, NY and Charlotte, NC were so friendly when I moved there. That was 33 years ago.
