    Not in NYC but nearby is Essex Camera Repair in Carlstadt, NJ. I have also used Paul Ebel with excellent results.

I speculate that the lens had sat in a closet for long enough that the lubrication got a bit gummy, but working the mechanism a few times smoothed it out.
    I agree this may ameliorate the situation as a quick fix temporarily, my training as an engineer tells me that if a mechanism's lubricants are "gummy" further use will cause the components to wear excessively. There's no way round it this lens needs servicing .
