Just north of the Grand Concourse are numerous sets of steep steps that run from Jerome Avenue to Anderson Avenue, colloquially referred to as “street steps.” There are at least 63 of these in the Bronx. In the Get Down, they’re shown strewn with litter. Even in 2012, news reports were showing that the steps continued to be in a state of disrepair. The steps shown in the show are at East 165th Street.
