Default Best City for the Apocalypse?

T2k, Dinosaurs and Cadillacs, Twilight 2k, Morrow Project, or other games

Within the next 20 years, on Earth:
Washington DC, Moscow, Beijing, Berlin are gone. The world slides into collapse. Every city has been hit.

Modern society is collapsing for any number of reasons:
A zombie plague, massive pandemic, limited tactical nuclear war, limited alien invasion, uplifted race rebellion, AI gone amuck, asteroid collisions, an Ice Age, resource collapse or any other reason you can think of.

Things to remember:
- 1 million plus population in the early 21st century
- Mass depopulation of the Earth (pick the scenario)
- up to 20 years after the fall (you've been there a while and survived) - but if you want to describe a place during the fall or earlier go ahead.

What city(s) would you choose for a specific apocalypse?

One could choose islands with lower populations or mountain locations. Those are the common choices because we think a big wall will keep us safe. Those towns will be foraging, raiding parties everywhere. Town wars... farms without alignment are toast.

Your one of the leaders, hiding in plain sight. People are flocking to your area...maybe. You find yourself in a city somewhere in the world. Perhaps you moved there for business, or have a vacation rental for the summer. Or you live there or relocated there for any reason you choose? Your an accepted citizen not an invader. A leader perhaps.

Which city is the best for holding out against the catastrophe? Which City slides into the collapse and may still hold the opportunity to rebuild? Which do you choose? Here is a list of Disaster films, choose wisely and define a scenario.

Which City do you CHOOSE? And Why?
Best Cities 20 years after the Apocalypse? Why? Scenario?
New York (Planet of the Apes, )

Rome, Italy
Another city over 1 million people today (early 21st century)



I had 3:
Honolulu (remote, agriculture, fishing, naval base) - zombie apocalypse, virus strain, uplift race failure,
Tampa Bay (multiple peninsulas/islands, military base, extensive medical resources, agriculture, and fishing) - same as above
Orlando (Other) (lots of agriculture, hotels to hold up in and turn into communities, the Gaylord is enormous, Cape Canaveral is close with some military assets, freeways are barriers) and a lot of resources. - Virus, uplift failed, limited nuclear war, maybe asteroid hit.

Pick your city, pick your disaster, describe why you like the city for rebuilding the world. Have fun! Don't run to a town and not play! Put together a scenario explaining the situation.
