A town in Northeast America. Ivy University is located in the town center and is home to a great number of students. There are businesses such as cafes, gun shops, and gas stands near the town's subway stations, and Tall Oaks enjoys a reputation as a peaceful university town. Following the 2013 bioterrorist attack, however, urban services collapsed and the town became a living hell overrun with walking corpses reanimated by the C-Virus. About ninety percent of the town's 70,000 residents perished, and although some of the survivors sought refuge in the cathedral on the outskirts of the city, most of them fell victim to a Lepotitsa which had emerged from the underground laboratory managed by the Simmons family. Like Raccoon City before it, Tall Oaks was ultimately incinerated in a missile attack.
