If When the zombie apocalypse goes down, New York City is apparently doomed.

CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. conducted a "totally necessary and 100 percent practical survey" of the 53 largest metropolitan areas in the United States to see which metro region would be most, and least, likely to "survive an actual night (or day) of the living dead," The Baltimore Sun reports.


The New York-Newark-New Jersey metropolitan area landed at the very bottom of the resulting Zombie Apocalypse Index, falling behind the metropolitan areas surrounding Tampa, Miami, Jacksonville, and a whole bunch of other cities not found in Florida.

The weighted index ranking is based on industrial and occupational data from each city that was collected and then analyzed along different vectors like containment, cure, defense, and food. Apparently, "the heart and soul that Bartolo Colón brings to every pitch" does nothing to temper the walking dead.

To add insult to New Yorkers' injury, Boston was ranked as the no. 1 most zombie-ready city in the country. Salt Lake City, Baltimore, and Columbus did pretty well, too.

Bad at filling out bios seeks same.
