Brooklyn 36th Street Subway Station's Funky Step That Tripped Everybody Up

This video from 2012 tells the tale of a slightly taller stair in the 36th St. Station subway. The taller step causes almost every straphanger unfortunate enough to try and cross it to stumble.

There’s something very unique about my subway station.

This funny schadenfreude-esque video went viral at the time, eventually leading the MTA to send out crews to fix the step in the days following.
