Nearly one year after Hurricane Sandy hit New York City, Ellis Island has partially reopened. Reuters reports:

Repairs are ongoing, but from Monday morning visitors will be able to see its famous views of the downtown Manhattan skyline and tour parts of the immigration museum in the island's Beaux-Arts main building, including the Great Hall that was once crowded with newly arrived immigrants.

And in other Sandy news, The NY Times reports on how many businesses and homes are remembering Sandy--by preserving the waterline.
