Give it enough time, like another ice age, and Manhattan probably won't be an island.

That'll never happen. The harbor's are to important to New York, as the silt builds up it is dredged so any future buildup is controlled and minimize. Manhattan is the size it's going to be.

I know that film 'the day after tommorow' shows scenes that has one in a million chance of happening. But who knows.

The north core is a long, long way from rising again. They're not even seriously working on it. The south core will rise first, probably in July.

Wouldn't it depend on what part of USA its built in. Busy cities like NYC LA of Chi town, they can't build that tall because of busy air lines.

But if they build mile high tower in Montana, I think they could. I'm seriously thinking someone's gonna judge me, cos I'm not even sure

No, the limit is 610m/2000ft anywhere in the United States. Some places are actually are lower than that but that's the highest allowed anywhere. In some areas near airports or air force bases (Las Vegas strip for example) buildings much lower have had problems getting approvals. The limit is imposed by the FAA.

Manhattan's size has expanded time and time again. In the far future, harbors may not even be important. With a growing population and compacted population, one day I bet long after we all die there will be some sort of massive land reclamation project for this area. It would be nice to see thousands of years into the future.

That will never happen. What about access up the Hudson? Manhattan is more likely to be under water than without it.

what is the cost of the project? what kind of features measures does it have so it can fend off possible future terrorist attacks?

I heard from a lower Manhattan website that the WTC and projects around it are costing over 22 billion dollars and it's likely the safest and strongest complex of skyscrapers ever. Each tower is costing well over a billion dollars with towers 1, 2 and 3 likely each over 2 billion dollars each and they say tower 1 could be over 3 billion. 7WTC was 700 million dollars. They have so many new features to remain safe and sturdy during a possible attack that you can't list them all. The towers set new standards for all skyscrapers. 7WTC was just a start.


You guys just can't accept that I totally win the debate about Manhattan possibly not being an island because all I said was "future" and "may" and as the plates of the earth move one day it won't be "here" or an island anymore. To add, anything could happen. Manhattan wasn't an island to begin with and it is clearly close to the Bronx, the only part of NYC connected to the motherland. A show about skyscrapers mentioned that Manhattan is connected to it by Manhattan Schist or some other rock.
