In yet another stand-in for the Yale Club, the Union League Club at 38 East 37th Street serves as the interior film location. The notable entrance and double staircase is hard to miss – part of the overall landmarked interior. The building, the fourth headquarters of the Union League, was designed by Benjamin Wystar Morris.
The Union League was first formed during the Civil War to advance the preservation of the Union and its history includes being part of the movements to establish the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the installation of the Statue of Liberty, and bringing down Boss Tweed. Members have included Theodore Roosevelt, J.P. Morgan and John Jay.
