NEW YORK (AP) - It didn’t turn out to be a monster storm.

Midtown Manhattan is a blanket of white but roads and sidewalks are passable.

A few people and cars were out early Tuesday.

Many businesses such as 24-hour delis are open.

Mido Salha worked his usual overnight shift at the City Gourmet Market on Eighth Avenue in Manhattan. He put a “we are open” sign in the window.

He says “It’s just a regular snow day.”

Brandon Bhajan, a security guard at a 33rd Street building, says he thinks it’s a good thing the city prepared New Yorkers for the worst even if it didn’t turn out as bad.

He says the “over-coverage” of the storm allowed people to be ready and prepared.
