Map of Albuquerque

Only two things I know about Albuquerque; Bugs Bunny should've taken a left turn there, and give me a hundred tries, I'll never be able to spell it.

Albuquerque is the largest city in the state of New Mexico and the primary setting and shooting location for the series Breaking Bad and its spin-off, Better Call Saul.

Albuquerque is the city in which Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, and most of the other Characters of Breaking Bad resided. Throughout the city and it's surroundings, the events of Breaking Bad transpired. Walter White was an experienced chemist and former chemistry teacher who taught at a local high school. After being diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in 2008, Walter began manufacturing and distributing meth with a former student from his chemistry class, Jesse Pinkman. Through his drug trade, Walter enters into the criminal underworld lurking in plain sight in Albuquerque, eventually becoming the biggest meth distributor in the city and forming the largest meth manufacturing operation in the country within it, while managing to go under the radar of law enforcement and the government. Walter's actions often brought chaos and terror to the city and it's residents, such as his role in a plane crash right above the area, his bombing of a local nursing home, and numerous deaths and murders connected to him. It is likely that after the events that occurred, Albuquerque's reputation was damaged, as the city was the birthplace of the largest meth manufacturing operation in American history, and Walter White, who soon became the target of a nationwide manhunt, lived right in it.
