And who is Ziggy? Fair question. The short answer: Ziggy is Richard Zeigler, of Anchorage Alaska.
But the long answer is much more interesting: Ziggy is: Artist. Crafstman. Inventor. Muralist. Furrier, Shoeshine man, Mayoral Candidate at least once, Urban Wildlife Videographer, Leatherworker, Shoe Repairman, Philosopher, Storyteller, and - always - Character.
Viewers from all over the world get a front row seat on Anchorage's urban wildlife 24/7 through Ziggy's Fourth Avenue web cams. View the ZiggyCams here.
And, if nothing too interesting is happening live on the street, you can check out past video episodes of Ziggy Vision at Ziggy's Blog.
Ziggy has footage of the 1964 Fur Rondy Championship Sled Dog Race shot right here on 4th Avenue - that's the "before". Then comes the "after" - view the same place after the Big Earthquake devastated the town a short time later, in this rare footage shot on the streets ( or what was left of them) of downtown. Ziggy has posted a couple of trailers on YouTube, representing several hours of amazing film. You can watch them right here:

What does the master leatherworker, shoe repairer, furrier, and artist in leather use to take care of his hide? He uses Ziggy Grease. And now you can too!
