What about "conveniently empty streets" or "conveniently empty cities"? Primeval has his...glaring issue in the first episode of the fourth season.

There were exactly two bystanders for the entire 20 minutes a spinosaurus was rampaging around a supposedly populated area (they made a point of having a main character confiscate the couple's iPhone).

Somewhere a real estate broker is crying at the building he COULD have leased.

I was also think that Marlo Stanfield's use of Conveniently Empty Building in The Wire would qualify, as would the use of vacant buildings in the legalized-drug zone. Hell, vacant buildings are a MAJOR aspect of the setting in Baltimore, in The Wire... although would that qualify as this trope?
