Help, I need to buy a new suitcase in Midtown Manhattan!

My old suitcase finally gave out on me. I got it off the luggage carousel at LaGuardia this morning and the frame is separating from the rest of the bag. I'm worried it will fall apart if I try to fly it home to Minnesota on Friday morning. I'm staying near the Chrysler building and I should be free from 5-6 pm tomorrow evening. Is there somewhere nearby where I can buy a new suitcase that isn't going to break the bank? I hate spending a lot on luggage, but I also don't want to lose or ruin my stuff.

Please solve my complicated luggage situation!

I need luggage for three situations and I'm hoping I can wind up with just two items (and not spend too much money). I need a rolling case for my MacBook Pro and books for school, a piece of carry-on luggage for an upcoming trip, and a sturdy but not too heavy suitcase. [more inside]

What kind of luggage to take inter-railing in Europe

In October we're going travelling around western Europe by train for several weeks and I need to buy some kind of luggage. I had thought that a ~35-45 litre backpack would be about right, sizewise and for portability. But I've heard from people with direct experience that pickpockets are a big problem in several of the places we're going and that makes backpacks a bad idea. So what kind of luggage should I use that will be reasonable to carry around but still secure given we're changing locations (and thus hotels) regularly. [more inside]

Staying within airline luggage size limits?

Need big, light bags/suitcases

Big, light luggage or alternative? I'll probably move overseas, want to take the max weight in my (checked) bags, hope to have as little weight as possible glommed up by the bags themselves. I'm okay with something not likely to last a long time and cheap is good, though at the risk of stating the obvious, don't want something real vulnerable to tearing on the flight(s) over there. Thanks for any suggestions you can share.

Where to Store a Suitcase in NYC?

Checking a suitcase in New York City: is it possible? I'd like to leave my suitcase somewhere for the day. Many moons ago, I checked my bag at Grand Central Terminal, but I've heard that the luggage room was discontinued after 9/11. Does anyone know if it's back (or have other suggestions)?
