8:07 am
we know the in the past we've seen stampedes, big rushes going into stores typically on black friday to get those deals, electronics and so forth, but we're seeing less and less of those because more stores are opening on thanksgiving. it's not just walmart, target, best buy, macy's, lord and taylor, there are many, many stores that choose to open today. but on the other hand, there's been a little bit of backlash, take a look, this is a commercial that was put out by tj maxx be, marshall's and home goods to tell their customers they will not be opening. they say they are doing it so their employees have a chance to spend time with family and so their customers do as well. they basically say they would rather wait until friday, and a lot of other retailers are following in their footsteps. this morning at wal-mart we've been getting the pulse, what do they think about stores opening on thursday? here's what they have to say.
8:08 am
>> i don't think it's good because everybody's got to be with their family. it's good to open tonight at 11:00, 12:00, you know, til tomorrow. >> can it wait until tomorrow, or should it start today? >> it should start today. some people just want a big screen tv, they may want anything more their home, they may not want to eat. so i think it should definitely happen on thanksgiving. >> well, there you go. different strokes for different folks. certainly, some people want to take advantage of the deals. as for tomorrow, most stores are going to be open. rei made some news earlier this month when they said they're not going to open even on black friday, they said that's a day people should spend outdoors enjoying. think pretty much every other retailer will be open tomorrow and, of course, every store is open online, and a lot of the deals you can find online right now and throughout the weekend. is so plenty of opportunities to get that holiday shopping done. ben be teresa?
8:09 am
>> i heard you say this earlier, black friday, it's a thing of the past. >> it's a little passe anymore. >> we do everything on our phone and computer. >> the deals have been out there since the start of november. moving on, a murder suspect in new jersey who narrowly avoided oncoming traffic on a big highway. >> you will be amazed no one was seriously injured here, posted on knot jersey i don't mean -- north jersey tom. the pursuit started on the new york thruway. at one point, look at this, weaving in and out of traffic. at one point on the palisades the suspect goes onto the grass. officers kept up with him going through fort lee and onto the new jersey turnpike hitting speeds of 110 miles an hour. so like everybody else, he got caught in traffic. this is right before the toll plaza, cops were able to subdue him there. the suspect is a 45-year-old
8:10 am
wanted for the murder of a upstate. he now faces a slew of charges, and he awaits extradition back to new york. all right, a brazen bedroom burglary caught on camera. >> take a look at this. police say the burglar got into a home on union street in yesterday morning. scary stuff. he walked into a bedroom where a man was sleeping and took a cell phone from the dresser. there it is. then ran off when the man woke up. wow. he's in the bedroom with the man sleeping. he was last seen running down 33rd avenue. he was wearing all black and had a cap with the word "diamond" in red and white -- >> and that is a knife in his mouth. >> any information call crimestoppers, 800-577-tips. >> that is terrifying and incredibly creepy. >> all right. that mother who left her
8:11 am
queens has been found and will not be charged. >> this is a surveillance video of holding the baby near the church. the queens da's office says the mother followed the spirit of the safe haven law and even returned to the church the next be morning to make sure her child had been found. a custodian discovered the baby boy with his umbilical cord or still attached on monday. this baby is now in the care of authorities. 8:13 now, black lives matter protesters marched throughout the city last night. >> protesters gathered in times well. police tell us this morning there were no arrests. and in chicago protesters upset over the police shooting of a black teenager destroying a public christmas tree in millenium park. >> protesters tore the lights off. police quickly moved n made several arrests. protesters calling on more
8:12 am
people to join them tomorrow in an effort to shut down black friday shop anything the michigan avenue district. well, it might not be the happiest of thanksgiving in hoboken, because they've had this water main break. >> good news on this holiday morning, four days after a water main break flooded the streets there, crews completed the installation yesterday of a new valve. a boiled water advisory has been lifted but residents are being asked to conserve water for the next couple of days so adequate pressure can be maintained throughout the system for everybody. but the water should be back on this morning for most folks in hoboken and jersey city. >> you already have enough stress with the holiday getting everything prepared x then you've got to add this on top of it. >> but now it's back, just in time to cook hopefully. mike is here. a pretty nice thanksgiving
8:13 am
holiday, maybe get out and throw the football around this afternoon or something like that. >> is that what you can? >> sometimes. >> a hitting judgey that one. is that what you do? >> i didn't say it like that, is that what you do? >> but it's 60 degrees. >> you should get out there and enjoy. >> take the dog for a walk, do something. >> it'll be gray and cold for weeks on end before long. >> i know. get out there and soak it in. get out there and enjoy it. happy thanksgiving, everyone. do whatever you like to do, just with your friends and family. not too much expected unless your cooking's no good. anyhow, 43 at central park. 36 in islip, 43 in montauk, 30 in monticello. we do have a mainly clear sky. temps are, generally speaking, warmer in all locations except for montauk. anyhow, we are looking at a general warming trend. now, our sky is kind of mixed. we've got some places with sun,
8:14 am
regardless we are expecting more sun than clouds especially early on and then more clouds should start to build in later on. high pressure's starting to slip offshore, so winds more from the east and southeast, and that'll direct up only warmer air. therefore, the clouds should be making a comeback and some fog be as well later on tonight into tomorrow. even in this afternoon a few more clouds, but rain is not a problem for a while here. looks like our high temp goes up to 60 degrees this afternoon. tonight the clouds thicken, and tomorrow a mostly to cloudy sky. high temp up to 64 could be a little bit of drizzle in the area. 53 on saturday, 50 on sunday and more showers coming later tuesday into wednesday. don't forget the fox 5ny weather app has daily and hourly forecasts, down load it for me, and also we've got a special birthday, this is so cute. this is, happy birthday to jax

8:16 am
columbus circle, go east on 59th street and then sixth avenue. other street closures will be around sixth avenue, central streets. i would avoid it up to 8th street, central park west. madison avenue should be okay, but because of the parade 57th treat, subways, the f trains are bypassing that station because of overcrowded conditions. >> ines, someone tweeted me saying they're shopping right now while the potatoes are cooking, he's heading to long island, he hopes to make it back in time for christmas. >> well, be he's leaving now -- >> figure fingers crossed. >> thanks, ines. still to come on good day new york. --

8:41 am
the refrigerator. you know, the liquid's getting into the cavity in all the little nooks and crannies of the turkey, and that flavor's getting into it. >> and that's the key. refrigerate this. >> no, throw it back in your reafrican-american rater. >> and you could do it overnight. you could do it last night and have it sit in the fridge -- >> the longest you'd want to brine this is about 12 hours. >> so you can overdo it. >> if you leave the turkey in the brine too long, it'll get rubbery. >> do you put anything in the cavity? any lemons or rose marry or -- >> i would tend to do more of the same thing. >> salt and pepper. >> we don't go too crazy this terms of putting stuffing. just think of it like a chicken. you cook a turkey just like >> okay. >> what else do we have here? stock ingredients, right? >> the second most important thing of cooking turkey and the whole thanksgiving experience, just make sure you're going to
