New York City’s Department of Finance is working with the police department to delete sensitive information about potential terror targets from its website after the New York Post revealed security lapses.

The agency’s website had links to floor plans of buildings that included the under-construction 1 World Trade Center, which Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says is the United States’ biggest target.

The online database attaches this information for use in real estate transactions.

"We are working, in consultation with the NYPD counterterrorism unit, to ensure information property owners record with Finance does not pose a serious threat to New Yorkers," said agency rep Owen Stone.

Officials are scouring the site to remove floor plans, schematics, and any other data that could be used by terrorists.
