Vincent, you have every right to get your PP back. Call the lender and tell them you want it. PP is usually defined as whatever would fall out if you turn the car upside down and shake it. Anything you attach to the car stays.

They have no liability for a vehicle repossessed lawfully from their property.

Yes. It is your personal property. It is taking up space on the property of the repossession agency. They may charge you for using that space.

Usual process is to call the local PD, find out who towed the vehicle and contact the tower for info on getting your PP. In the case of a repossession, you contact the LENDER to find out the details.

In the state of New York, provided there is a legal order for repossession, once the vehicle is located, it may be secured and recovered. The repossession agency has 24 hours to notify the registered owner of the repossession, but they are only required to do so by mail, and may do so to the address of record on the registration. They do not have to notify anyone at the time of repossession other than local law enforcement of jurisdiction. They must inventory and secure any property contained in the vehicle, and may charge a storage fee for that property.
