Live reports from the charming streets of the west village and the thoroughfare that is 5th Avenue in Brooklyn: The people, they be shopping. Granted, they aren't lining up outside the stores or anything (I'm not sure if anyone woke up at 5AM to make it to Walmart—frankly, the though makes us shudder), but hopefully this holiday shopping weekend will be more green than black, if you know what we mean. If you're out and about today, here are some more ideas.
