ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS - Wrapped protectively in the American flag and transported on a flat bed truck, a piece of steel weighing more than 500 pounds was transported to Englewood Cliffs.

Police Chief Michael Cioffi and other city officials from Englewood Cliffs went to JFK Airport to pick up the steel where it's being stored by the Port Authority.

According to the Port Authority, 162 New Jersey communities are among nearly 1,200 towns across the country that are sending a vehicle to JFK to drive back a remnant of the attacks.
