Had a rope wrapped around it and may could have been lowered into the 18-inch gap

Police have found a sizable piece of one of the engines from a plane that crashed into the World Trade Center, more than 11 years after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
The piece of landing gear was found wedged between two buildings just blocks from Ground Zero- in between the buildings at 51 Park Place and 50 Murray Street in downtown Manhattan.
The location is particularly noteworthy because 51 Park Place is the site of the Islamic Cultural Center that stirred up controversy and months of protests two years ago when the site developers wanted to turn it into a mosque.
New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said that the investigation will look at the possibility that the part had been somehow lowered down into the narrow space. The gear has a serial number visible next to the word ‘Boeing.’
