Anyone know a good steam specialist in NYC?

I'm looking for a recommendation for someone to help get the radiators and piping working correctly in my NYC apartment.  The plumber my landlord hired didn't seem to understand/care about proper pitch or pipe sizing and I would like get someone in here who understands how to make my setup work properly.

    Hey Joe

    Hey Joe, I emailed your contact information to my landlord (Christina) over the weekend based on the referrals given here.  I'm really hoping she contacts you to fix this incorrect setup that her plumber installed in my apartment last week.  Completely improper pitch, water trapped in the units, way too small of a runout pipe (3/4" copper), etc.  As a result, the radiators are making lots of noise and not heating up quickly or completely.

    That's what I gave her

    Yeah, I gave her your name and number after looking you up based on the recommendations above.

    I explained the situation to her via email and offered to call you myself to get the problems corrected, but I'm waiting to hear back.
