Associated Press + More

NEW YORK (AP) — Carnegie Hall will reopen Wednesday for the first time since Superstorm Sandy forced it to shutter its doors.

The concert hall announced Tuesday that its planned concerts will resume Wednesday after more than a week of closure due to the storm. Carnegie Hall sits on West 57th St. where a hanging crane caused street closures in the area. After West 57th St. was reopened Sunday, Carnegie Hall still needed to restore power.

Carnegie Hall had canceled or postponed all performances since Oct. 28.
