The only place I know of is Modern Leather Goods on 32nd St. in Manhattan - it's close to the N/Q at 34th St.

I don't know of a specific luggage repair shop, but depending on what needs repairing you might try a shoe repair shop (that does leather and industrial zipper work), a tailor (often found in dry cleaning shops) that does industrial fabric/zipper work, or a hardware store (they sometimes do metal work).

The shoe repair shop on Broadway between 32 and 33rd did it. They were terrific. It ended up being so small and quick they didn't charge me (I left a good tip).

BTW I first researched Manhattan luggage places and they are all total freakin nightmares apart from Modern, who seemed decent on the phone and have good reviews.
