The package was discovered on Thursday but is thought to have been received on Wednesday the same day former Presidents and high ranking government officials were targeted.
A suspicious package was sent to Robert De Niro’s Tribeca restaurant, police sources told The Post early Thursday.
The parcel addressed to De Niro was sent to the Tribeca Grill on Greenwich St. Police X-rayed it and found it to be “the same” as the explosive devices mailed to top Democrats a day earlier, the sources said.
Security personnel at Tribeca Productions — a film and TV production company co-founded in 1989 by De Niro at the same location — notified police of the package at about 5 a.m., a law enforcement source told The Post.
“They (police) took it out and went through all safety procedures. It was addressed to Robert De Niro and is similar packaging to the others,” a Tribeca spokesperson told The Post. “It is an open investigation. Everyone is safe and the building is open.”
