Anchorage Town Square Webcam

Located on E street between 5th and 6th Avenue, this wide-angle camera shows the Town Square in downtown Anchorage, looking toward the west.  Sixth avenue is to the left and 5th avenue is to the right.  From left to right, you can see the Parking Garage, the Dena’ina Center, the tall Conoco Phillips building, City Hall and the Performing Arts Center is directly opposite in the center of the frame.  The tall building on the right is the Key Bank Plaza and the curved glass roof of the Egan Center can be seen on the far right.

The buildings actually do stand straight.  Their curved appearance in the background of the picture is due to the wide-angle lens distortion.  The black circle that sometimes appears in a bright sky is actually the sun – the camera blacks it out because of the intense light reaching the sensors.
