The piece of equipment was discovered Wednesday by surveyors inspecting the lower Manhattan site of a planned Islamic community center on behalf of the building's owner, police said. An inspector was on the roof and noticed the debris and then called 911. Police secured the scene, documenting it with photos. It includes a clearly visible Boeing Co. identification number, New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said. "The odds of this being wedged between there is amazing," Browne said, adding it was not surprising that it went undiscovered for more than a decade given the location. "It had to have fallen just the right way to make it into that space."
O'Connor is a supporter of the Islamic center and said the fact that the plane fragment was found there "makes me think that this was the right place for a center that was going to heal the divide."
Funny how two people can see something completely different in irony. The fact that it was found there makes ME think that it's a testament to Islam and their feelings for America. But I suppose that doesn't make people FEEL all warm and fuzzy inside.
