Black Friday starts early this year, with deals beginning on the evening of Thanksgiving. Newsday reporters are out on Long Island looking for deals, so check back regularly for the latest deals as seen through Instagram, which enhances the color and tone of the photographs and can also allow for special effects, such as the appearance of a Polaroid photo or other vintage look.
