NYC Will Not Survive The Zombie Apocalypse.

Thinking about moving to the Big Apple any time soon? Well, you'd better not hope there's a zombie apocalypse!

According to a report released by CareerBuilder and Economic Modelling Specialists International, when compared to residents of other major US cities, New York City has the lowest possible chance of surviving a widespread zombie attack.
The safest? Boston, Massachusetts - based on Bostonians' ability to fight, contain, find a cure for, and outlast an epidemic with plenty of food source. (Probably also because it's far too windy and cold for any zombie to want to stalk the streets while looking for fresh brains, but that's just my opinion.)
The website even created a Zombie Apocalypse Index (shown above) that shows the varying degrees of safety various regions of the country can expect. They ranked these cities based on what they've called 'essential elements of zombie apocalypse survival' - including ability to fight, the likelihood they'd be able to contain the infected, the medical aptitude required to research a cure for the virus, and amount of sustainable food they'd need to outlast the apocalypse.

According to the Zombie Apocalypse Index, here are the top 10 best and worst zombie apocalypse cities:

Most Likely to Survive

1. Boston, Massachusetts
2. Salt Lake City, Utah
3. Columbus, Ohio
4. Baltimore, Maryland
5. Virginia Beach and Norfolk, Virginia
6. Seattle, Washington
7. San Diego, California
8. Kansas City, Missouri
9. Denver, Colorado
10. Indianapolis, Indiana

Least Likely To Survive

44. Las Vegas, Nevada
45. Providence, Rhode Island
46. Milwaukee, Wisconsin
47. Jacksonville, Florida
48. Miami, Florida
49. Chicago, Illinois
50. Riverside/ San Bernadino, California
51. Los Angeles, California
52. Tampa, Florida,
53. New York, New York

Where does your city land on the list? Will YOU survive a zombie apocalypse?
