EAST NEW YORK - Long lines and crowded stores didn?t intimidate serious Brooklyn bargain shoppers on Black Friday.

Customers packed the stores as soon as they opened at 6 a.m. in some parts of Brooklyn. Some shoppers even lined up overnight to be one of the first inside. The Target store in East New York had extra workers to accommodate the large crowds looking to make their holiday purchases early.

Many shoppers say getting up early to shop on Black Friday is a tradition. Many don?t mind the long lines and crowds as long as they get good prices on big-ticket items.
