‘The Joker’ Stairs Become A Tourist Attraction As More And More People Gather To ‘Do The Dance’ (14 Pics)


Instagrammers and movie fans are flocking to the staircase, located at 167th Street in the Bronx borough of New York City, to visit the place where Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck celebrated becoming The Clown Prince of Crime.

The Bronx is already home to popular tourist destinations like The Bronx Zoo, Yankee Stadium, and the New York Botanical Gardens. Now, this staircase has definitely made it to the list of locales to visit in the area.

Connecting the Shakespearean and Anderson Avenues at West 167th Street, these stairs weren’t particularly popular. But things have changed. Judging from online photos and videos, people are frequently hanging out there, with some even dressed up as the iconic villain.

The #Jokerstairs already have nearly 900 tagged photos on Instagram, and were also added to Google Maps as a “religious site.” However, local residents aren’t happy with the mania. “We hope it ends soon because we don’t need this,” Jonathan Francis, a 29-year-old who has lived in the neighborhood his entire life, told Gothamist. “We feel disrespected.”
