Hello Jaipur

Every Person In This City Lives In One Building.

Welcome to the weirdest city in Alaska, Whittier: the city that forgot how to city. It houses 220 people, in ONE building, ONE. That’s right, it’s a city in a building. It’s not like they have other buildings to go to work to. Yep, they go to work, school and shop in the SAME building!
Whittier was built during World War II as a military facility for the United States Army. They wanted a base somewhere secluded and protected by the mountains. Begich Tower was built as barracks to house the military. The location was owned by the government until 1969, when it was given to the residents and officially became a city. The people who live there now are simply the remnants of the military base that once was, the descendants of soldiers and workers who resided there.
