These subway stairs are trying to kill you

These subway stairs are trying to kill you
They lead to the street. Do you feel 
you can get there without incident?

Dean Peterson noticed something odd about the subway stairs near his place in Brooklyn, New York.

One of the stair steps is just a fraction of an inch higher than the other,
and when stair climbers get used to their rhythm when walking up the stairs, even that small of a difference can cause people to stumble.

Mr. Peterson made a short film about it.

There’s something very unique about my subway station.
