... for predominantly left-lateral motion on the DFFZ. Sinistral motion also predominated in the 1985 earthquake sequence. The accumulated displacement on the DFFZ shown by offset Paleozoic-age markers, however, is right-lateral (20–30m). Other northwest-striking brittle faults in the Manhattan Prong exhibit similar...

...DOUGLAS G. MOSE; JOHN HAYES Abstract The Manhattan Prong in southeastern New York consists primarily of a Cambrian-Ordovician sequence (Lowerre Quartzite, Inwood Marble, Manhattan Schist) that unconformably overlies the Fordham Gneiss of uncertain age.

...LEON E LONG Abstract The intimately associated Yonkers and Fordham Gneisses are the oldest formations in the Manhattan Prong. A whole-rock Rb-Sr isochron determined from the Yonkers Gneiss corresponds to an age of 575 ± 30 m.y., and initial Sr 87 /Sr 86 = 0.725 ± 0.008. The Manhattan Prong rocks...
