Yesterday, the 163rd Street-Amsterdam Avenue C station reopened for service in both directions after being closed since March for extensive renovations. In addition to structural improvements, cosmetic additions were added in the form of four new glass mosaic murals by area artists. That’s the good news – the bad news is there’s no 5 train service this weekend and the D and F trains are once again masquerading as one another for a large number of stops.
