(AP) Many of Boston's shops and outdoor cafes are beginning to re-open. But there are signs everywhere that a return to normalcy will take time for the thousands of people who live and work near the site of the marathon bombings.

A seven-block swath of Boylston Street was shuttered Wednesday as investigators in white jumpsuits scoured the area for clues. Scores of National Guard troops gathered among armored Humvees in the nearby Boston Common. And hand-written signs declaring "Boston will overcome" hung outside Newbury Street's high-end boutiques.

Monday's attack left three dead and more than 170 wounded. Several nearby businesses were allowed to open Wednesday as investigators began to narrow the restricted zone.

Pat Wynn, a 24-year-old bartender from Nantucket, said the scene is "almost like walking through a dream."
