Hi Daniel.
When I moved to New York City, the best advice about O&M I got was from 
other blind people.  Is there an NFB chapter in the town you're moving to? 
If so, they can probably tell you all kinds of useful things about how the 
street pattern is laid out, what streets are just crazy, how well buses run, 
things like that.
