New York's Empire State building, museums, some Broadway theaters and many stores have reopened, a relief for tourists who've been stuck in hotel rooms by superstorm Sandy since the weekend.

Still, plenty of sites remain closed -- among them the 9/11 Memorial, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island -- with some likely to stay shut down indefinitely as damage assessments continue.

Swedish tourist Thomas Karlegott and his wife stood in line today at the TKTS booth in Times Square, saying they'd be happy to get tickets to any show after wandering around a largely shuttered Manhattan the last few days.

French tourist Martine Juilliard was more philosophical about the last few days, saying she's pleased to be alive. For the shops and museums, she says "we'll come back another time."
