No 'Joker': Bronx 'Step Street' Becomes New York Hot Spot Thanks to Hit Movie Like most tourists, Patricia Osuna had a list of "must sees" on his trip to New York City: the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and, surprisingly, a steep flight of steps in an out-of-the-way neighborhood of the Bronx that has become a cult-movie landmark. This fall Osuna and a stream of fellow visitors have flocked to the stairway, known as a "step street," to see the real-life backdrop to a memorable scene in "Joker," the hit movie that tells the backstory of Batman's deranged foe, the Joker. The scene captures the moment that the loner Arthur Fleck, played by Joaquin Phoenix, transforms into the Joker as he dances down the steps to Gary Glitter's anthem "Rock & Roll Part 2," his hair dyed a menacing green and his face painted like a clown. "I'm visiting New York for the first time and I said that I have to come to visit the stairs," said Osuna, a 46-year-old bus company owner from Tijuana, Mexico.
