The feat for pulling Manhattan is an impressive one.
Ity's actually a very difficult weight to calculate as there are so many variables i.e Thickness of bedrock, number of buildings, number of people, number of vehicles.
The area of land mass is approx 23 square miles.
If the bedrock thickness to be moved was around 2000 feet thick, this would equate to approx 0000000 cm3. At an approx density of 2.7g/cm3, that is 98, 005, 093, 357 tonnes.
If you then add in 2 million vehicles (1.8 million tonnes) and on average 2 million people (180, 000 tonnes) and the number of buildings (very roughly 300, 000, 000 tonnes).
That gives a figure of 98, 358, 273, 357 tonnes.
As Herc was pulling the weight, he would also have had to overcome fricton forces (to begine the islands movement) and the resistance/weight of the water to the islands movement.
