"Joker" Created A New (Dangerous) Tourist Attraction

Premiere Of Warner Bros Pictures "Joker" - Arrivals

Thanks to a scene in the “Joker” movie, people are flocking to a specific New York City neighborhood to grab photos.

In the movie, Joaquin Phoenix dances down a city staircase to Gary Glitter’s "Rock and Roll Part 2.”

The staircase is in the Highbridge area of the Bronx, at West 167th Street. The site has become a surprise tourist attraction.

But not everyone is happy about the staircase being a new hot spot. Locals are worried about everything from the steepness of the staircase to the roughness of the area in general. 

One local said: "I've literally fallen down these stairs before.”

Another said: "If you wanna get robbed then sure. I grew up there all my life and if you ain't from there, don't know people from there then don't be chillin in the hood."
