Failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad reportedly had his evil eye on four other local targets.

Shahzad told interrogators he wanted to hit Rockefeller Plaza, Grand Central Terminal, the World Financial Center and the Connecticut headquarters of defense contractor Sikorsky if his Times Square attack were successful, WNYW/Channel 5 reported last night.

His plans were foiled on May 1, when a vendor saw smoke coming from Shahzad’s SUV and alerted police.

The area was evacuated until cops determined it was safe.

Shahzad revealed to investigators that he had planned to attack Times Square on either May 1 or May 8, at 6:30 p.m.

The suspect had studied Web sites that stream video of area foot traffic, and had concluded that early Saturday nights gave him the best chance to kill as many people as possible, the TV station said.
