Whether it’s zombies, vampires, ice ages, alien invasion or a terrorist plot, bad things happen in NYC. Well at least in the movies. This simple truth makes me wonder; why New York? I’ve come up with a few different possible reasons.

1. NYC is huge

It’s the biggest city in the country

2. Filmmakers love to shoot in New York

New York is a cinematographers dream. That’s why everyone and their grandma has shot a movie in The City.

3. The population

There are so many people waiting to turn into zombies in New York.

4. Books have something against the city too

A lot of the time, movies are based off books. There are many books that have zombies or aliens tearing apart the city.

5. New York is cool

People like New York.
