So I was looking for a place to have a human 'sanctuary' in one of my dystopian zombie-apocolypse stories and decided to use a sports stadium. Large capacity, high walls and limited entrances makes it perfect to create a small city for survivors. So I went searching for the right stadium. It can't be located in a major city, because the zombie presence would be too great. Also, I had already placed some of my scenes in Chicago, so I decided to look close to there. I found Toyota Soccer Stadium in Bridgeview, IL only 12 miles from Chicago. It holds around 28,000 people and was specifically made for soccer and concerts. Closeness to Chicago means my MC could travel to the city easily on foot or vehicle to scavenge for supplies, guns, etc... Do you think with the size of the stadium that I could create a bustling mini-city? I figure I would rip out all the seats, erect small buildings with multiple floors and have the very center be a marketplace. The nicest buildings would be built surrounding the marketplace, and as you went further to the outside if the oval, the buildings and occupants get more 'run down'. So the outskirts of the stadium, in the nosebleed seats would be where your seedier population would thrive. Also, I was thinking that the 'Elders' of the sanctuary would have exclusive use of the PA system. Just seeing if my sizing is okay and what you think of the idea? Any glaring common-sense issues I missed?
