THE BRONX - AAA says more Bronx residents are staying close to home for this year's Labor Day weekend.

Experts say Labor Day falls later in the year than usual, conflicting with the start of the school year. AAA believes 39.1 million Americans will travel more than 50 miles away from home. That is a 13.3 percent decrease from last year's Labor Day travelers.

AAA stated they expect more Americans to travel this holiday than were projected to travel over this year's 4th of July weekend.
