Wow, looks very cold! Thank you for posting these, mthq! :D Looks like people actually know how to live in such cold and snowy conditions up there, unlike down here. ^_^

I was there last June. Although the weather was in the low 60's, it was about the same as our winters! :shades:

^yep! Thanks to mayor Mark Begich, the McKay is being restored to its original colors, original use, and its original name -- the McKinley Tower Apartments. It's actually developer Mark Marlow who got a push from the mayor with some financial support.

Urbanguy - I'll see what I can do!

thanks for the replies all!
