The latest “Joker” film starring Joaquin Phoenix is inspiring a new Instagram movement in the Bronx.
New Yorkers who have seen the hit film were quick to identify the Gotham City staircase showcased in the blockbuster, which opened earlier this month. The staircase is located in the Bronx’s neighborhood, Highbridge, at Shakespeare and Jerome Avenues reports ABC.
During the film, Arthur Fleck, aka The Joker, dances down the staircase, which is symbolic of life’s turning points as the Joker becomes more of a criminal.
He strikes a particular pose, which is being mimicked by fans and probably flooding your feeds.
If you check out the spot now, you might just beat your favorite influencer to it. It also would be the perfect spot to show off your Joker Halloween costume.
