The iconic steps from the new Joker film are quickly becoming a tourist attraction.
The staircase, located at 167th Street in the Bronx borough of New York City, is one of the most recognisable locations in the new Joaquin Phoenix-starring movie, which sees the actor dancing down the steps after becoming The Joker.
Now, a host of fans have been flocking to the steps to pose for Instagram photos.

Joker director Todd Phillips recently said that he will never release deleted scenes or an extended cut of the film.
He does, however, seem open to a potential sequel of the film, which recently secured the biggest October box office opening of all time.
