Some diseases like Sleeping sickness, Rabies and Necrosis show signs that are eerily close to what you’d expect a zombie to be like. I mean come on, Donald Trump is an actual candidate for presidency, so it would be no surprise if the next worldwide outbreak was a bunch of zombies.

Last time I checked the zombies weren’t walking the streets but if they do, here are the best places you should hide during a zombie apocalypse. This is your obvious choice to hideout at, but only if you can get yourself a reliable boat, especially one that will help you escape to your island getaway.

You must also be able to bring equipment, supplies, lots of water and food to last you while you wait out the zombie apocalypse. Being in a jail might have not completely turned out like the characters in the Walking Dead thought, but they did last a long time there.

If you are lucky enough to stumble upon a minimal security complex like those fancy one’s in Norway, you’ll be staying in the lap of luxury. You’ll feel like you’re some 4-star hotel compared to being out in the element with those killer zombies.

If history can teach us anything, castles have always been a wise choice when trying to keep your enemies at bay. The land enclosed by the castle could be used for planting some food and raising livestock, if you can get your hands on some.

You will be out of reach from all the flesh eaters on the ground, but don’t be surprised if you get a couple of floaters occasionally. At times, you would have to make it to dry land in order to collect more fuel, food and water.

But be aware, if you find infected passengers, make them walk the plank, fast! If you can get your hands on a lighthouse you’re in luck because zombies, according to TV and the movies, can’t walk upstairs all that well.

A lighthouse is also a safe place to hide out during a zombie apocalypse because it’s mostly surrounded by water and its height gives you a better vantage point with a 360 degree panoramic view. Assuming you could find a bunker that is properly ventilated to breathe, and have enough time to gather supplies like food, water, and fuel to generate electricity, waiting out a zombie apocalypse in an underground bunker would be one of the safest and most sensible strategies.

Propped up on stilts high above the waterline, sea oil drilling platforms would be another great find if you could get yourself there. These structures could provide an almost perfect strategic refuge in the event of a zombie outbreak.

Just like the lighthouse and a deep sea oil rig, a treehouse provides you isolation and the advantage to see the zombies or anyone actually alive that is trying to get at you. Be warned there are some downsides to living in a treehouse, you will most definitely be subject to snakes, spiders, to name a few.

A high mountain, most times, are uninhabited and that would mean your probability to survive the zombie apocalypse would be greater. Due to the geographic distance from most cities, a mountain can allow you to bite your time in hopes others will contain the outbreak by killing off some zombies or slowing down the rate of infection.

And while the agency’s vows to investigate and quarantine an infection provide some comfort, it’s important to have a secure refuge in mind for the worst case scenario. The complex was outfitted with offices, laundries, a hospital, cafeterias, kitchens, the second largest phone exchange in Britain, and a television studio, but none of these amenities were ever used.

Pros: Assuming you could gather enough supplies (food, water, and fuel for electricity), waiting out a zombie apocalypse in an underground city would be one of the safest and most sensible strategies. Another good zombie -evading strategy is to assume an elevated position, ideally with a rifle and a 360 degree view of the surrounding area.

Pros: Being high above the ground provides a huge tactical advantage, and Lawson Tower comes complete with a crow’s nest and an observation deck. Annette Black/Atlas Obscure Alcatraz has served many purposes since Julian Workman, the island’s first recorded owner, erected a lighthouse there in 1846: It was the base for the San Francisco arsenal during the civil war, famously housed military and federal prisoners, and today is a popular tourist attraction.

With its ample living space, high walls, and island geography, it’s a natural choice for a survivor stronghold during a zombie apocalypse. Pros: Well fortified, surrounded by water, with an infamously secure fortress, Alcatraz comes equipped with a wide range of zombie defenses.

Its proximity to San Francisco (it’s just 1.5 miles offshore) makes it a convenient rallying point for the surviving populace, but it’s also a liability: the island could easily be inundated or compromised. And if a zombie outbreak did occur on the island, you’d be trapped on Alcatraz with a bunch of flesh-eating undead, which sounds like the plot of the scariest horror movie ever.

B4bees/CC BY 2.0 One hundred feet below a charming old farmhouse in Scotland is a tunnel that leads to a 24,000 square-foot bunker that was built to shelter top government officials in case of a nuclear strike. Today it is a Cold War museum that houses a collection of military vehicles and a number of questionably accurate historical artifacts.

Only a handful survived–a few lucky sailors in boats off the coast, and a local drunk who had been thrown in jail the night before: Luger Salaries. His solitary confinement cell, a stone structure built partially into the ground, saved his life from scalding volcanic gasses and ash.

Propped up on stilts high above the waterline and decommissioned in the 1950s, these structures are in serious disrepair, but could provide an almost perfect strategic refuge in the event of a zombie outbreak. In their current state, entering the sea forts is prohibited and possibly unsafe, but they could easily be fortified to provide protection and seclusion.

Michelle Denmark/Atlas Obscure Carved into the sandstone along Highway 191 in Moab, Utah, this humbly named dwelling is actually a luxurious 5,000 square-foot home, complete with 14 rooms, a fireplace, and a relaxing bathtub. Pros: At only 5,000 square feet, this abode is much smaller than many government-built bunkers, which makes it easier to secure and well suited to a small band of survivors.

The Evans have been the gatekeepers of the Caucasus Mountains since the Bronze Age, when their ancestors battled to keep countless invading armies out. The threat of invasion never abated, and today their heavily fortified tower style homes still stand in the hilly landscape of present-day Georgia.

When it comes to apocalyptic hideouts, this treetop town has a lot of going for it: elevation, isolation, and the fact each house is accessible by a single notched pole that would be nearly impossible for a zombie to navigate. Pros: Isolation is an important feature of any hideout, and the Korea Tribe excels in this area: it was completely removed from the outside world until first contacted by Dutch missionaries in the 1970s.

Architect of the Capitol/Public Domain Between 1969 and 1988, the United States Federal Reserve stored billions of shrink-wrapped dollars in a facility lined with 12-inch thick concrete walls, reinforced by steel, and buried nearly 4 feet underground. The bunker now resides under the National Audio Visual Conservation Center, storing a huge supply of archives including ultra-flammable nitrate film.

Experts at the CDC recommend planning an evacuation route to get out of town, as even the most experienced Uber drivers are ill-equipped to do battle with hordes of undead corpses. For those who are unable to escape to a less-hot real estate market when the end comes, Brownstone recommends the following Brooklyn locations to hide until you become infected, or Judgement Day (whichever comes first).

Criteria considered for qualifying locations include visibility, isolation and good local public schools, in case an antidote is ever found. One of Brooklyn’s most iconic eyesores, this industrial hulk is across the street from Whole Foods, making it easy to meet the CDC’s recommendation to stock up on nonperishable in your emergency kit.

With plenty of visibility and isolation, the most major concern about shacking up in the Gowns Bat cave is that it is the likely site of a Revolutionary War burial ground, meaning the building’s foundation may be compromised if bodies arise beneath it. Luxury condos in this clock tower routinely sell for over a million dollars, but once all the residents have been infected you can have this stunning Byzantine-Romanesque style landmark all to yourself.

If not, the strip of 10 Second-Empire homes in the Brooklyn Navy Yard will serve as fantastic kindling for the delusions of grandeur you’ll likely be having as you slowly go mad in a world where your friends want you only for your brain. With regimented shafts and it's positioning at the edge of Red Hook, the aging storehouse offers ideal visibility and multiple escape routes.

Even a zombie’s plebeian sensibilities will understand that Brooklyn’s artisanal taste and beautiful prewar housing stock make the borough a hotspot for eating people’s faces and then taking a relaxing staycation during the daylight hours in a stunningly remodeled sunless Park Slope basement. Experts at the CDC recommend planning an evacuation route to get out of town, as even the most experienced Uber drivers are ill-equipped to do battle with hordes of undead corpses.

With regimented shafts and it's positioning at the edge of Red Hook, the aging storehouse offers ideal visibility and multiple escape routes. While this list constitutes a thorough guide to Brooklyn’s best hideout locations, Brownstone’s best advice for you in case of zombie apocalypse is to get the hell out of New York.
