(AP) Parts of lower Manhattan's Financial District are still laboring to recover nearly a month after Superstorm Sandy.


A real estate consulting firm says that of the nearly 50 office buildings shut down after Sandy buffeted the Financial District, about half have reopened. Some of the others that are home to large financial and law firms still could be closed for weeks, if not months.


Heavy flooding on Oct. 29 caused severe damage to internal power systems housed in building basements. Teams of contractors, many from other parts of the country, have been working nonstop to restore them.


Also hard-hit was the South Street Seaport. The popular tourist destination remains a ghost town.
