      I'm just transfixed by these photos. I don't think I've ever taken the time to look at photos of Greenland before... thank you for making these available!

      Very interesting shot my friend! Why was it abandoned? Were there no jobs anymore? I love ghosttowns, Bodie is still on top of my 'places to visit'-list... :-)

      This was a very bad decision from the Danish Parliament...

      Very nice picture! Been to Nuuk couple of times, but have never heard of Kangeq. Looks like a very beautiful place. But it also looks lonely and somehow dark, like the title says "ghost town"

      Kangeq is abandoned in the 70s,not 60s :-)

      Super schönes Foto, Gerald. Die Lage der Häuser ist doch herrlich. Ich kann kaum verstehen, dass dies eine Geisterstadt sein soll. Sicher aus wirtschaftlichen Gründen.

      It's nice to see some of the buildings in a natural state, rather than painted!
