Looking for Antenna Installer in NYC

I’m a newly licensed ham in NYC. I’m presently running a (mostly ineffective) 40m ghetto dipole until I can get an antenna up on the roof. Unfortunately, working on the roof is a problem for me as I have balance issues that make that an unsafe proposition. I’d like to find someone I can pay to install an OCF dipole for me.

Can someone recommend an installer in the NYC area?
