Word on the Street: St. Patrick's Day

Approximately 127 million Americans say they will celebrate St. Patrick's Day Tuesday, according to an annual survey by the National Retail Federation.



Total spending is expected to be around $4.6 billion, slightly lower than last year. While some Americans plan to celebrate with a brew at a bar, other say they will mark the holiday at home.



News 12 Brooklyn asked Brooklyn residents how they plan to mark St. Patrick's Day.
