Robert De Niro is doing well after breaking into a NYC townhouse early this morning

Robert De Niro said he was “okay” after Monday’s early morning burglary at his Manhattan rented townhouse — and when asked about the crime that was shot back, “You can read about it in the papers.”

The 79-year-old Oscar winner rushed past reporters and into a waiting Cadillac Escalade after exiting the Upper East Side home around 4:30 p.m., holding a folder for paperwork.

“How are you feeling, Mr. De Niro?” The Post asked the “Goodfellas” star, who replied, “OK.”

“Are you all right?”

“Yes, I’m fine,” he said, wearing a black and gray striped scarf, black beanie and athletic running shoes. “Thank you very much.”

De Niro holed up in the $69,000-a-month townhouse all day after the approximately 2:30 a.m. burglary, and serial thief Shanice Aviles, 30, has now been charged in the incident.

But a Post reporter spotted plenty of home cooking being delivered to their homes. Around 1:30 p.m., a staff member jumped into one of De Niro’s Escalades and returned with eight bags of takeout from Nobu, the Japanese fusion restaurant the actor co-founded.

About 15 minutes later, a shipment of dessert arrived from Dominique Ansel Bakery — the famous maker of the cronut.

According to police sources, a locksmith also showed up to fix the basement door through which Aviles allegedly broke into the home and was messing with the actor’s iPad and Christmas presents under his tree.

Police officers from the NYPD crime scene were located outside the townhouse, while a squad car stayed outside throughout the day.

Aviles, meanwhile, was booked into the 19th Precinct station house and taken to Manhattan Criminal Court, where she was being held on $40,000 bail.

“I didn’t go to Robert De Niro’s house!” She yelled at reporters as she was led out of the Lenox Hill train station in handcuffs on Monday afternoon.

Sources said she had at least 26 previous arrests, including 16 this year alone for burglary and petty theft. Robert De Niro is doing well after breaking into a NYC townhouse early this morning
