did you get enough? i'm not low-vision or live in NYCity, but i belong
to a mailing list that's centered in NYC and it might be a good place to
try to get more people if you need to. the list has been around
"forever" and i'd be happy to make a message to it, if you'd like. Or,
of course, you could join it .... I haven't written to thyt list in a
while but i don't suppose it matters, not particularly active on this
list, for that matter.
