'Joker' Steps Become Bronx Tourist Attraction

NEW YORK — Move over, Rocky, there’s a new stairway to climb. A set of outdoor steps in The Bronx has become a tourist attraction in recent weeks since the release of the movie “Joker.”

The stairs are between two buildings on Shakespeare Avenue, about a half-mile from Yankee Stadium.

In the movie, lead actor Joaquin Phoenix dances as he goes down the steps wearing a bright red suit and clown makeup.

Now neighborhood residents using the steps are being joined by tourists trying to recreate the scene. The visitors have been taking selfies, and some have even shown up in costume.

Coming to the stairs is “really immersive,” said Oliver Bonallack, a visitor from Brighton, England.

“You never really get to experience a film firsthand,” he said. “I feel like it is so iconic.”

But not everyone is thrilled with the upsurge in popularity.
