The bomb packages were sent as the nation prepared for the November 6 elections that will decide whether Democrats take control of one or both houses of Congress from Republicans and deny Trump the majority his party now holds in both chambers.
According to the New York City Police Department, the package was found near Greenwich and Franklin streets.
The package sent to the actor also had the same return address as the others: that of Democratic US Rep.
With every intercepted pipe bomb, panic spread from NY, to Washington, to Florida and Los Angeles. No postmark is visible on the front of the De Niro package, similar to some of the others, the sources said.
"We need to come together and send one very clear unmistakable message that threats or acts of political violence of any kind have no place in America".
The Associated Press, citing a source, reported that a second package addressed to Joe Biden was found at a DE postal facility. Details suggest only a broad pattern - that the items were packaged in manila envelopes and addressed to prominent Democrats.
"The protectees did not receive the packages, nor were they at risk of receiving them", Secret Service said in the statement.
In a statement, Secret Service said agents intercepted a package addressed to Hillary Clinton late Tuesday night.
Suspicious packages were also intercepted addressed to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) at the congressional mail sorting facility outside D.C. and addressed to former Attorney General Eric Holder; the package to Holder was addressed wrong and bounced back to the return address on the package, which was Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in south Florida and CNN's NY offices, among others. It matches the description of those sent to the other officials.

The package was placed in a bomb disposal truck and driven to an NYPD firing range in the Bronx early Thursday morning, CBS New York reported. "Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that", he said.
Law enforcement officials in the city had already been under a heightened alert, increasing police presence after several bombs were intercepted on Wednesday.
The devices are suspected to be pipe bombs. Each package had six Forever stamps on the envelope as well.
The bombs were likely meant to be found and create panic, explosives experts say.
The devices had suspicious-looking packaging, and at least one had a timer that can be bought for a few dollars online and should be easily detected when mailed or delivered.
The package was considered suspicious due to its similarities to other packages sent this week to prominent Democrats and CNN, law enforcement officials said Thursday.
