The United States Government has received unsubstantiated and uncorroborated information that terrorists are considering attacks against landmarks in New York City. While the FBI has no information as to time, date or method of attack; out of an abundance of caution, information has been transmitted to law enforcement in New York.

The threat level for the city, state and nation remains unchanged.
