There’s a town in Alaska where everyone lives under one roof.

The small town of Whittier, around 60 miles south of Anchorage, is home to just a few hundred people, and they all live under the same roof.

This is because, with a few exceptions, nearly all residents live in a giant tower.

So this means that technically, everyone in town is your neighbor, and what’s amazing is this tower is also where you’ll find the local supermarket, post office and even the church.

The only thing that’s not part of the same building is the school, but even though it’s in a different building, it is still connected to the main tower via an underground tunnel.
