San Francisco = lots of climbing, of pretty much any type, in the region.
Chicago = pretty much nothing.
NY = long drives, muggy summers and cold, wet winters. Not much sport climbing unless you drive to Rumney, Gunks are reasonably close if you like trad. There's sporadic pockets of other stuff around but not much in the way of destinations.
I'd look at Denver or Salt Lake. I moved away from NY (to New Mexico) because I hate the east coast summers.
