    I hope you enjoyed this first on-location video! If you want to see more involved projects like this more often, be sure to check out the sponsor (Squarespace) with the link in the description. They truly made this possible and they're a committed sponsor. I've also used them for years before they became a sponsor so all the praise I give them is 100% true.

    I totally enjoyed this. If money were no object, I'd visit places like this all the time. A place this isolated is so culturally unique. Fascinating.

    That was a good video. But you didn't answer my biggest question. This whole "Squarespace" deal. I mean, how can you put space into a square? Is it perhaps some sort of cuboidal space where they just forgot depth??

    C'mon, this video was interesting until the Mayor started talking about global warming. This is biggest lie in this century, it is nothing a BIG tax scam(scheme) for the NWO elite. Do some homework< they had 'global cooling' in the 70's. There is a SPECIAL Place in 'hell' these lying motherfukers. #kissmyass

    I think it’s funny that people in the lower 48 forget about Alaska so often. It is strange for people who aren’t from Alaska to think of cities such as Barrow being part of the United States but for those in Alaska, we are more a part of the US than anyone else

    Wow ! Thanks for posting this. I have always dreamt of visiting Alaska in particular Tin city, to be able to see the opposite side of the coin Russia from the beach. With Barrow, the way is clear and now Barrow is my dream town. Whose is going to invite me there to be able to get my visa. One day my dream might just become true even if for a moment.

    climate change is a joke, you know how 10.000 years ago, which by the way is not that much if you compare it to the age of earth, the climate changed drastically almost 16 °C in a even shorter period of time which caused massive extinctions(Quaternary extinction event). But no, no this time with it gonna kill us all

Government protects the area for the experiments and also to get many natural resources from it! They don't want no "smart" or "rich" citizens in there, that is why they not developing it and setting the service and products charges so high, making it unlivable! Its not unlivable cuz of conditions, its like that cuz government needs to keep it that way!

    In 1971 a member of the Barrow High School student government witnessed a battle of the bands in Anchorage where my band, Sterile Tripe Incorporated, came in second place (I was 18). Afterward he approached us and asked us to play at the Barrow High School Dance for about $300. We said "Sure". We flew up there and had to sleep on the pews of the church, then the next day we played. We tried playing Alice Cooper and Deep Purple, but no one would dance. Then we figured out that they were 3 or 4 years behind, and as soon as we started playing old Creedence Clearwater Revival songs, everyone began to dance. We had little experience of the town itself. There wasn't much there. It was cold, so that discouraged us. We flew back, and that is my Barrow Alaska story.
