However, a study has shown that New York City sinks by 2mm every year. It’s because of the high-rise buildings that make up the skyscraper. 

The U.S. Geological Survey team estimated that the total weight of more than 1 million buildings in New York is 770 million tons. That’s the combined weight of 70,000 Eiffel Towers in Paris, France.

Rising sea levels are also having an impact. Sea levels in the eastern part of the United States, where Manhattan is located, have risen by more than 20 cm since 1950.
