Subways back on track

Commuters wait for the C-train at the Chambers Street STation in Manhattan. MTA officials had said two weeks ago that the C-train would take three to five years to be operational again after a fire in a signal room at the Chambers Street station. A mere two weeks later, the C is up and running again, much to the joy of the commuters, many of whom say that their daily commutes were either much longer, or much more unpleasant due to overcrowding.Photo/ Scout Tufankjian
