Hidden City

Is it possible that part of the landing gear of one of the planes that destroyed the World Trade Center buildings has been found? And was unaccounted for? Yes, apparently so. Such a piece of debris was found behind a building three blocks north of the 9/11 site by land surveyors studying the site for an owner preparing to buy the parcel for the Park Place Islamic Center that is being built there. Oh conspiracy theories!!! Or serendipity. Here's the NYTimes report: "11 Years Later, Debris from Plane is Found near Ground Zero."
