Subway Fall Video Goes Viral; MTA Works to Make Repairs
Less than a day after we posted this video of people falling up the stairs of the 36th Street Subway, the MTA set to work to fix the trip inducing step.
The dangerous step, it turns out, is a half-inch higher than the others. It's not clear why it was built that way, but after the video went viral and reporters started calling, the MTA went to work.
Peterson's video gained over 300,000 views in less than 12 hours after it reached the front page of Reddit.
Crews went to the station to block off the staircase in preparation for repairs. It's not clear what the fix will entail, or how long it will take.
