Many turn Labor Day getaway into staycationPosted: Updated:

Stewart Airport, along with other airports across the nation, is seeing fewer fliers this Labor Day. Local beaches, however, are expected to be crowded during the holiday weekend.
"It's been really too expensive, so we've been coming to parks and [doing] things that are less expensive," says Debbie Degilio.
Greg Williams says he plans to host a barbecue and invite his family over, which would be less costly than traveling.
