Yes, it’s true: New York City is sinking!
A recently published article from AGU sheds light on this alarming issue, revealing that the weight of the 1.48 trillion pounds of buildings in the city is causing it to sink. According to the article, New York sinks at a rate of two to four millimeters per year, with certain areas subsiding even faster. This poses a significant concern when combined with the rising sea levels caused by global warming and the downward force exerted by skyscrapers.
