Independent: Had the plotters ever enacted the plan, they would have been most unlikely to succeed because the river is lower than Manhattan. … But an American counterterrorism official said that investigators had found no evidence that the Holland tunnel was part of the plot. Mr Mershon said the group specifically mentioned only the PATH tube tunnels beneath the Hudson.

London Times: FBI officials said that the plot had been in its planning stages. It was also pointed out that any plan to flood Wall Street would have failed because Lower Manhattan lies above the level of the Hudson River.
