Posted: Updated:
BROOKLYN -

The parking lots are packed and last-minute school shopping is on in Brooklyn.

From folders to pens, many kids say getting new supplies motivates them to start fresh.

"I was able to buy a new backpack and it looks pretty cool," says Hanna Hodzic. "It has flowers on it and it has a cup holder inside of it."

Schools open in the city on Wednesday.
