Welcome to Whittier, Alaska, a town of just over 200 residents, where almost all of them live in a 14-story former Army barracks. Built in 1956, this building is called Begich Towers and inside you’ll find everything that a regular town is home to: a police station, health clinic, church, and a laundromat. There’s also a B&B inside for tourists, a grocery store, and a children’s playground.
Now, why is a children’s playground inside a building, you ask? Remember, this is Alaska, and Whittier happens to be on the colder side, with around 100km/h winds and 250 inches (635 cm) of snow in a season.
