Bone fragments found on roof opposite Twin Towers site.
The handful of pieces, not much larger than two inches each, have been handed over to the city's chief medical examiner for investigation.
Spokeswoman Ellen Borakove said: "We have not yet determined whether the bones are human so we don't know whether we'll be able to match them up to DNA records."
The discovery some 536 feet above Lower Manhattan was a grim reminder of 9/11's human toll.
So far the New York medical examiner has examined 19,964human remains from the attack and identified 1,594 of the 2,749 victims from the Twin Towers.
Samples of the fragments will be examined under a microscope and the results should take around a week. The bones were found by workers preparing to demolish the former Deutsche Bank building which stood almost directly opposite the World Trade Center's south tower. Its collapse left a 15-story crater in the building
