As rising oceans threaten NYC, study documents another risk: The city is sinking

  • New research estimates that New York City's landmass is sinking at an average rate of 1 to 2 millimeters per year due to the weight of its buildings. The compression varies throughout the city, with Midtown Manhattan's skyscrapers largely built on rock and some parts of Brooklyn, Queens, and downtown Manhattan on looser soil and sinking faster.
  • Climate change is compounding the issue, as the sea level rise continues to accelerate.
