Documentary Of The Week: New York City Is The Birthplace Of The Atlantic Ocean

Written by John Lounsbury

Econintersect: This week we review the geologic history of New York City, concentrating on Manhattan. Starting a billion years ago the story progresses through today. Dinosaurs once walked through Manhattan, then in the southern hemisphere, on their way from New Jersey to Morocco. Before that it was deep beneath water.

Lava flows created the New Jersey Palisades which are now the western shore of the Hudson River opposite Manhattan's west side.
