Smith Street = Main Street?

Has the recession stopped you from popping into local businesses?

The folks at WNYC have been looking at the recession on a micro level, heading up and down Smith Street, as well as four other streets in New York City, to talk with shop owners and how their business is being affected by the economic downturn.

The most recent installment has them in Brooklyn Industries, whose owners are hopeful that now that the weather's getting warmer, more people will get out and shop.

Hear it here.

You can find the first installment, which went to Mystic Essence, Flight 001, Exit 9, Saul Restaurant, Smith Pet Foods, and the then soon-to-be-opening Atomic Wings, here.

You tell us - have you been shopping less at your neighborhood businesses?
