lol you've obviously never seen NYC after 9-11. We'd be shooting those zombies like no tomorrow with the amount of security we have nowadays.

Assuming zombies are a percent of population thing or some kind of disease spread I would think anywhere with a high population density would be screwed. Couple that with trying to feed and protect that many people once the supply lines shut down and you have a chaotic mess.

I'm thinking small rural towns would fare much better. Especially those with a decent population of survivalist or just plain old outdoors type people. Even better if it has natural defenses as already mentioned. On a lake or in the mountains where you can minimize the directions they can come from and use natural terrain to improve your defenses.

I think cities with the least security wouldn't survive-- hence NYC would do pretty well since we have security everywhere nowadays it seems.

I like this topic!

I think that the sheer number of people in NYC would cause the virus to multiply too quickly, even with the increased security. Same thing with all major metros.

I'd look to small, rural towns where the majority of residents own guns. Also, the geography of the area contributes. Rural areas in Nevada's desert, northern Canada, places with a lot of water around, towns close to military bases, etc.

I'd look to towns with a less compacted population, near good farming and water resources, in an area with a lot of guns/4x4 vehicles, secluded from the major outbreak points in major cities, and near a military base that DOES NOT take in refugees.
