An interesting discovery was made late last week blocks away from the World Trade Center site. Landing gear from one of the planes that attacked the twin towers on September 11, 2001 was found wedged between two buildings.
The equipment was identified through a Boeing serial number. It was found between 51 Park Place and 50 Murray Street. The Park Place site is the proposed home of the Muslim Community Center, according to ABC News. Opponents to the site have dubbed it the Ground Zero Mosque. I’m sure they want to find it ironic that the discovery was made so close to the Muslim center. *side-eye*
It’s hard to think that nearly 12 years later the remnants of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil are still being found. But, I don’t think it is completely out of the realm of possibility considering how many buildings are in lower Manhattan. Imagine how many other fragments and remains are scattered throughout the area.
The area where the discovery was made is now considered an official crime scene. Investigators are also searching for human remains in the area between the buildings.
