New York City Is The Worst Place To Be During A Zombie Apocalypse

If you think the MTA is rough, they'll be a lot less accommodating during the end times.

If (or, let's face it: when) your neighbors are all infected with the virus, you'd better pray to your lucky stars you don't live in New York City. On CareerBuilder's Zombie Apocalypse Index, a "totally necessary and 100 percent practical survey," New York is ranked as the worst city in which to find yourself amidst the zombie apocalypse.

If you're an unfortunate resident of the Big Apple when the end times strike, you'll want to run up to Boston. The Massachusetts capital scored the safest, based on its ability to fight, contain, find a cure for and outlast an epidemic with ample food.
