MANHATTAN — Two people wearing black suits and black helmets parachuted into Lower Manhattan near the World Trade Center early Monday, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

The incident happened about 3:07 a.m. when the two people were caught by security cameras landing near the intersection of West and Vesey streets, Kelly said.

"They were seen walking with parachutes from the location," Kelly said during a press conference at police headquarters Monday afternoon. "No banners, no notes were left."

It was unclear if they landed in front of Goldman Sachs building at the intersection or in between the Goldman building and the Conrad Hotel, the commissioner added.

Police are looking into whether the two jumped from the roof of a building or from some type of aircraft.

The FAA plans to contact the NYPD about the circumstances surrounding the parachute jump to determine whether an investigation is warranted, sources said.
