A subway stop on the C line in Washington Heights will close Monday for six months of renovations.

The 163rd Street-Amsterdam Avenue station is the first in Manhattan to shut down as part of the MTA's Enhanced Station Initiative.

Repair work includes waterproofing the stop, and improving lighting, staircases and entrances. 

Riders will have to walk to the nearby 168th or 155th Street stations, or hop on the "1" train at 157th Street. 

The 163rd Street stop is one of more than 30 stations the MTA plans to close and repair over the next few years.
