Robin William's passing devastated all of us. "Known for his preternatural performance agility, lightning-fast impressions and malleable voice, Robin Williams was a versatile actor beloved by several generations."
Boston was fortunate enough to experience Robin in one of his finest roles in 'Good Will Hunting'. And if you want to take a trip down memory lane, you don't have to go far to relive some of your favorite and most iconic scenes in the movie.
The Boston Common, Boston
The infamous bench in 'Good Will Hunting' has been turned into a memorial by Bostonians. "It was on that bench that Williams sat with Damon and described to him what love and loss truly mean, and that it can’t be comprehended by reading books, or examining human nature from an outsider’s perspective.
Harvard Square, Cambridge
Harvard Square is the site of Au Bon Pain, 27 Brattle Street, where Will Hunting tries to explain his gift to Skylar, and also the now closed Tasty Café, where the two share a very messy pickle."
The L Street Tavern, South Boston
Although Robin Williams never actually shot a scene in the bar, the L Street Tavern in South Boston still became a landmark for its role in Good Will Hunting. "At the L Street Tavern, there's no shortage of Robin Williams memorabilia. He was already a big star when he was in town shooting the movie, but never acted like a big shot."
Robin Williams was loved by many and will never be forgotten. The memorial placed in the Boston Common has received much admiration through social media and can be visited by fans at any time.
