BROOKLYN - After Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, today was the day for shoppers to buy online with Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday is the day online retailers offer their biggest sales and holiday shopping deals.

Some Brooklyn residents say they prefer buying online because it's easier for them than waiting in long lines at the stores. Others call themselves old-fashioned and say they would rather shop in person.
