Whoa:

Police Say Boeing ID Is Clearly Visible On Aircraft Part; Scene Being Secured.

Police said it was discovered wedged between the rear of 51 Park Place and the rear of the building behind it, 50 Murray Street, in lower Manhattan. That area is the site of a controversial mosque and community center development, which currently used as prayer space and some community events[...]

The NYPD was securing the location as it would a crime scene, documenting it photographically and restricting access until the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner completes its health and safety evaluation protocol.

After that, a decision will be made concerning sifting the soil for possible human remains.[More...]

So ironic the part was found there.
