    The location shown of the track were Karras was jogging is incorrect. The Yates Field House now sits on the original location, right next to the old Heyden Observatory. (You can see its lime dome in the movie still.) It’s amazing (and sad) how much can change in 6 short years.

    Here’s a link to Google Maps showing the correct location: https://goo.gl/maps/eBDaXMGCPCy

    Here’s a link to a Washington Times article (1979) discussing the field house construction:

    Thanks for your site! Very enjoyable.
