What is the Needle's Eye referred to in Matthew 19:24?

Walled cities had large guarded gates that closed at night. If a person wished to enter or exit after dark, a tiny narrow door, called the eye of the needle, was opened within the main gate. If he was travelling with cargo, the camel or mule would have to be laboriously unloaded and forced through the small opening. Matthew 19:24 "...It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (See Puzzling Scriptures: The Needle's Eye)
