The steps where they filmed the Joker dancing is now an Instagram landmark for tourists

The site has become a landmark.

One of the biggest movies of 2019, the Joker captivated audiences when it landed in cinemas earlier this month.

And now, a famous landmark from the movie has become the perfect photo opportunity sight, with tonnes of tourists and Instagrammers flocking to the scene from the movie to recreate the Jokers creepy dance.

The exact location?

Well, it appears to be not far from the Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York. If you walk down 167th street you’ll come to the iconic staircase from the new flick.

This staircase is in the scene where the Joker is dancing on his way to appear on the Murray Franklin show, played by the talented Robert De Niro.

I won’t say anything more in case you haven’t seen the movie but yeah, it’s dark.

People have now since been taking to the steps in Joker-esque costumes, snapping some shots for the gram.

No word yet as to how the neighbours feel about the increased curfuffle around their homes but, time will tell.

If you haven’t seen the Joker yet I’d recommend getting on that before it leaves the cinema. The film reportedly made almost €85 million on its debut – smashing records to become the highest October release of all time.

Now that’s impressive.
