I have walking, some hearing & vision disabilities but I get around just fine on my own (I don't require assistance per se) I may have trouble seeing/reading some things but otherwise I can see where I am going AND communicate without sign language just fine too.

I purchased a NYPass+Citysights bus voucher, if anyone wants to do this route of touring and you will be in NYC Oct 30-Nov 3rd reply here smile.gif I'll be staying at the NYC Hostel. Friend of mine bailed out, so I have no choice but to stick to the plan in spite of him.
