It’s barely been 24 hours since the video of hapless train riders tripping on an uneven stair at the Sunset Park N/R station went up on Vimeo, and already it’s been viewed 469,000 times and blogged about nearly everywhere. It’s viral video gold, basically: a minute and a half straight of people tripping over the same stair, all set to a whimsical classical piano score. Apparently the snafus are caused by the fact that the offending stair is a half and inch taller than the rest of the staircase.
Well, the MTA noticed. They’ve already sent a crew to the station, blocking off the stairway in preparation for repairs, NBC reports. Color us impressed.
