    I live in West Harrison NY which is only a short drive from NYC.I've studied seismology since I was 7. And that's quite a while.Naturally I've asked the same question multiple times and have spent days researchingAll sorts of ways to answer it. Intraplate studies, unorthodox methods, local fault and quake history, and looked to some of the best for answers. You tell me what you think as I am eager to talk with like minded scientifically oriented people.So what do you think?

    There are many earthquakes in NY State...it all depends on how small you want to count them.
    The largest are in the moderate range (so far)

    Even the city has had some, 2 near mag +2.5 since 2000, the laargets being ~ Mag +5 in 1884.

    Wayne, I take it that was meant to be Mag +5, not Mag +.5


    TP44, welcome to the forum. I'm slightly puzzled by your question. As you will know from your research earthquakes have occured within New York state and New York city many times in the past and will continued to do so in future. So, why ask a question of a group of people of whom very few, or any will have done such research?

    Perhaps it would be more productive if you shared what your provisional conclusions are and allowed members to comment on those and the process by which you arrived at them.

    Perhaps I was unclear. I recommended that you post a summary of your thoughts on the matter here, not provide a probably meaningless clue to a possible internet site.
