I had to snail mail my letter, because the "check page" that comes up after
you fill out the nyc-gov page wouldn't let me scroll down to a submit
button. Clever. Anyway, if you want to send a snail mail letter of
support, quaint but effective, here is the address:

Kate D. Levin, Commissioner
NYC Department of Cultural Affairs
31 Chambers Street
New York, NY 10007
