Fans of the "Joker," which hit theaters earlier this month, are taking photos in front of those stairs.

You know the ones. Joker, portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, dances down the stairs as Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll Part 2" plays in the background. The scene is done so well, it's even become a widely used GIF.

And it seems like those stairs, which connect Shakespeare and Anderson avenues at West 167th Street, are becoming a popular tourist attraction, potentially to the chagrin of actual Bronx residents.

The Eiffel Tower is the world's most popular tourist attraction according to Instagram

The Eiffel Tower is the world's most popular tourist attraction according to Instagram How many among us have taken a photo of an iconic monument over the holidays? Chances are that those who did took a photo of the Eiffel Tower, which dominates the listing of the most hashtagged tourist attractions on Instagram. The Parisian icon is ahead of the Las Vegas Strip, (4,802,560 mentions), and NYC's Times Square (3,949,217 hashtags). The US is further represented on the list by the Grand Canyon, with its 3,433,049 tags.

New York wasn’t Gotham City anymore. “As with many stairs in the city, they’re getting a makeover,” Hurvitz said. “They’re getting repaved, they’re getting beautified. The right staircase would be a little bit dramatic, but also unmistakably gritty, the kind that no one would confuse with a tourist destination.

The Bronx is already home to popular tourist destinations like The Bronx Zoo, Yankee Stadium, and the New York Botanical Gardens. “Due to DC failing its latest movies, I felt the obligation to support the production of this film.” The man said the staircase didn’t feel the same in person as it did in the

Comedian Desus Nice, who co-hosts Showtime's "Desus & Mero," tweeted about the flux of people visiting the stairs.

But it's no secret the Bronx has had a rough reputation, one it's struggled to shed. Though its associations with arson fires and crime may have lessened in recent years, it's still not an area many tourists explore, despite being home to the Bronx Zoo, the New York Botanical Gardens and Yankee Stadium.

Now, that could be changing — and the Instagram photos are proof. Here are a bunch of fans doing their best impressions of the Joker's dance on location.

Nacho Montagna went all out, posting a video with a whole dance routine.
