Joker has become Warner Bros. highest grossing 2019 film since its acclaimed debut, and now it appears the stairs featured in the film has become New York’s latest tourist attraction.

The location, actually situated in the Bronx between Shakespeare and Anderson avenues at West 167th Street, has been flooded with Instagrammers reenacting Joaquin Phoenix‘s Joker dance from the film. However, many Bronx residents don’t appreciate the sudden attention and hope everyone that visits gets robbed.

Many have taken to social media to post their Joker pictures and voice their opinions on the matter. Twitter user @BornHooligan_ wrote “Please make sure you’re carrying cash. Everything around that area is cash only so make sure you have a lot of cash. And don’t be worried about the locals around the area they’re nice individuals.”

More started realizing the location as being listed “Joker Stairs” on Google Maps. The borough is already known for the Bronx Zoo, the New York Botanical Gardens and Yankee Stadium, however, it looks like those who reside in the Bronx are not ready for the steps to become a tourist attraction.

Check out the pictures and reactions below.
