A suspicious package was sent to the Tribeca restaurant owned by actor Robert De Niro, police sources told The Post on Thursday.

The parcel was "the same" as those containing pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats, including former President Obama, Hillary Clinton, along with CNN's New York bureau, the sources said.

The Tribeca Grill, along with the building next door has been evacuated.

It has already been retrieved and is on its way to Rodman’s Neck for inspection.

10. at first thought a 'lone wolf', now I get the feeling this terrorism has some 'foreign gov' backing

looks to me more like a "threat" of how easy it is to mail "bad things" and is meant to sow more political division & fear in America.

4. De Niro has been an outspoken critic of 45.

But I don't remember 45 saying anything about De Niro. The other bomb recipients have been bullied, called names and threatened by trump repeatedly.

Am I missing something?

6. This is gaining momentum

and that is horrible. Yesterday I pondered whether this was part of an election strategy to change the dynamics and dialogue: energize the GOP base while allowing Trump to proclaim "law and order" to the rest of America.

Now there are more packages - Biden, DeNiro, and one in Tribecca Manhattan this morning.

It's like they're building up to something, and no one knows what it is yet.

8. The DeNiro one is the same as the Tribeca one

 

It was sent to the Tribeca film festival which Mr. DeNiro runs. Also - and this could be thoroughly unrelated but I just got off a Metro North train - Harlem line which is the line that services both Bedford and Chappaqua and when we were passing Crestwood station, something happened. Tons of sparks outside the train and the train rocked from side to side. We made it into Grand Central but the train was met by a team of Metro North personnel and some cops. There was also an ambulance outside Grand Central with it's lights blaring. Like I said, could be and probably is unrelated but people are jittery.

9. I fear this could head in a very disadvantageous direction

If people fear polling places are not safe, they will stay home.

13. Most here are schools

 

Schools in NY are VERY secure. Only one entrance open and it's guarded. Mine is the fire station.
