Manhattan, NY / Entertainment / Sports

Here's the situation: Zombie infection has taken over the island of Manhattan. The whole island is under quarantine by the CDC. All bridges and tunnels are closed. It's is the belief of the gov't that this was a terrorist attack and Al Qaeda has taken responsibility for releasing the pathogen that created the zombies. It's estimated that 90% of the inhabitants of Manhattan have been infected. That's about 1.3 million zoms walking the streets. The POTUS is prepared to drop bombs on Manhattan if they are unable to contain the infestation.

Your goal is to get our of the city as fast as possible, travel light and stay protected. This guide will get you from the center of Chelsea to across the Hudson where rescue centers have been set up.

Go get an aluminum bat. Wood bats may feel heavier but will eventually wear out. They're downstairs to the left. Stay away from weapons that will get itself stuck in the flesh like a hatchet. Aim for the skull, in line with the top the ear. If you miss the temple hopefully you smash the jaw right off, making biting impossible.
