Old Deaf Ranter
I'm from NYC, and go to school in Ann Arbor, MI.
I recently lost my hearing, so I am just discovering NYC from the vantage point of being deaf after living here my whole life. It's actually pretty good! While I don't know sign language/ASL yet (though I am learning), I get the sense that the city is actually pretty deaf friendly. Most of the newer subway trains have signs that say the next step (as opposed to a guy speaking it who I obviously can't hear now), and people seem to be pretty receptive to writing things down or making it easy for me to try to read their lips.
In Ann Arbor, where I go to school, my college campus is really good too! When I graduate though, i definitely see myself going back to NYC.
NYC is a large number of Deaf community. There are so many NYC NJ and Long Island people to hang out in NYC. Jiro is from NJ who goes to NYC all the time.
Hi this is Bobby and Happy New year to you this is a map of the 20 most Deaf friendly cities in the usaJust 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?
I've never considered this kind of question, because I would have thought most cities the deaf would be treated the same.Just curious.

Both DC and Rochester as well as NYC.. well, all of those cities are very expensive to live in. If you want to live cheaper, the Deep South is best bet and Midwest as well. Depends on your personality. I would rather suburb toward countryside. NYS has too high taxes and liberal stance. It is a Blue state. Practically every city you listed are blue cities. NYC is very expensive. Most expensive actually in the US. US cost of living average is 100. NYC is way above 100. Like around 120 or so. Meaning 20 percent higher cost of living compared to what you earn. I am more toward red-- I am Conservative. I am actually relocating this summer to the Deep South or FL where there are red states and red cities but not looking for a city with Deaf people. I am toward the sunset of my life. Looks like you will have NYC people to be governor for quite a very long time. I am glad that man is out of office in Albany but another NYC!? No. All are my opinion.Rochester, NY
New York, New York
Los Angeles, CA
If you want cheapest yet Deaf Friendly city, then Rochester NY would be top on list. I am not sure about Austin cost of living. Yup, I am in Rochester, NY.
