Viral video prompts subway stair repair in Sunset Park

SUNSET PARK - A local filmmaker's video has led to stair repairs at the 36th Street station in Sunset Park.

Dean Peterson's viral video shows one of the steps is a fraction of an inch higher than all the others, causing passengers to trip as they exit the subway.

The MTA says the video brought their attention to the staircase. Crews were fixing the stairs today and officials promise to have repairs done and ready for use by Saturday morning.
