There’s a rumor that stalactites (or stalagmites, I always get the two mixed up) have formed in the basement areas of the Empire State building in New York.
Can someone confirm or deny this report?
If denied, then I humbly plead ignorance, and bow out as gracefully as I can.
But if confirmed, the question is: I’ve always been told that it takes thousands, if not millions of years for these rock formations to be created. If that’s true, then how could they exist in the basement of the Empire State building?
