New York City planning officials have given the go-ahead for Robert De Niro's plans to alter the penthouse roof on his Manhattan hotel. In 2008, the legendary actor was ordered to modify the top of his Greenwich Hotel after the Big Apple's Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC) insisted the structure was too large and was built without approval.

He initially refused to re-scale the roof and insisted that "mistakes" were to blame for his non-compliance. However, on Tuesday, November 16 the actor attended a meeting with LPC executives and his architect to unveils ideas for a re-design, and officials approved the plans.

No deadline date has been set for the work.
