By: Ava Machione
Whittier, Alaska is a quiet town on the west side of Prince William Sound in between mountains. This town's surprise is that it lives under one roof. All 217 of its residents live in one big building where they have all the nessecities they need.
Real World Link
Whittier, Alaska's real world link is it makes me wonder if I'd want to live in 1 building with with everyone in my town. I don't think I would want everyone in Clinton under 1 roof sharing all the same resources adn stores all the time. Also, you would rarely get to go outside or walk around in the snow and explore the world around you. I also wouldn't want to be so isolated from the rest of the world.
