Okay now if were able to how much exactly would Alcatraz Island cost if I wanted to buy it?

I am just so interested in the island that if were possible I would like to just know how much in exact amount would it probably cost to buy the whole island and also the prison....

After careful research on the Internet, and some calculated numbers work, I have determined that it costs more than any of us can afford.
BUT, fun fact, it was originally an Army fort!
I suppose you could find the cost of a 22 acre island, and find the cost of the prison itself

I'm definitely gonna be somewhere in the Everglades, the zombies are gonna have a heck of a time getting through there, if they do at all
Report as
Everglades?... Okay I'm just saying with my wild imagination about the Everglades don't you think they would just not care and go into the mucky water anyways just like that movie "Land of the Dead" and walk all the way across on the bottom and then come up on the other side and even if they were to do that which of course with their crazy hunger for human flesh would most likely do it and just be torn to pieces by alligators or swallowed by huge snakes then you got yourself a case of zombie alligators and snakes along with whatever else in that area.... Lol

Animals would be necessary to survive, and would be much more common than I could find in San Diego. If an animal attacks me I'm gonna fight back lol, and if an animal kills me, I'd probably deserve it, because I guarantee I'd be eating his brother.

Well then Lol =)

As for your last question, I'll agree with you on Alcatraz, since the currents would be way to strong for a zombie to even walk the bottom, but I like the Everglades better since its more of a challenge lol
Report as
Thanks and your just crazy then for wanting a challenge considering that you could in the process become infected then turn into a dead head yourself, but oh well that's just you and your plan and I have mine may the best one survive when it does happen ;)

The problem is that it's a national landmark and I believe a nature conservancy too. The island has some awesome tide pools there since it's so rocky and lots of sea birds nest there too. There are separate tours for just the nature part of the island. If the federal government were to put it up for sale, you'll probably have to spend $100 million. Probably more since property prices are so high in the San Francisco bay area.

Holy cow WOW and that's just lame haha alright then thanks! :D

Yeah, housing prices in San Francisco are crazy. It takes so much money to buy a house in the city itself. I would think that would double or triple price of property. I hear it's all about location, location, location.

The natural history part is very pretty too. http://www.nps.gov/alca/naturescience/index.htm

You should totally visit the property and check it out before you buy it!
