The other buildings on the street looked like they hadn't been altered much- just the most important one on the block!
The ladies who worked at the title company were very nice and let me photograph the inside. They were aware that the building was used in the movie.

Sadly, the "Good Whip Restaurant" is no more. It was an ice crean parlor in real life at the time of filming. It is now a title company. Well, that's progress I guess. It's located in Ballston Spa, about a 30 minute drive from Schenectady.

I've posted two modern shots for the same movie image. The lighting in both pictures isn't the greatest. The middle image was taken recently and the bottom image was taken about 5 years ago.
The middle image captures the same area as the movie scene, however, you can't see the buildings on the outside. The space is now used as a student break room.
I'm including the bottom picture because you can see the exterior buildings better. A few years ago, the space was used as a meeting room.
It's still disappointing that the classroom and student chairs no longer exist.

It was The Great Waldo Pepper, after The Way We Were came out. They were filming in different small towns in Texas and somehow my mom knew they were looking for young boys between a certain age (don't remember the exact ages). Ended up reading a scene and did terrible! I had never read a script before. Who knew that you weren't suppose to read what is in the parentheses? I was reading it like I was just reciting it normally.
On top of that, they ended up going with someone younger! Hollywood discriminates at all ages it seems.
It's time to go back to college and reminsence about The Way We Were. October and November are going to be dedicated to this film and the filming locations.
Union College in Schnectady, New York doubled for the college campus flashback scenes. Jackson's Garden is where Robert Redford jogged during the opening credits.
