Nouriel Roubini has been ordered by New York City to remove his hot tub — often the site of wild parties with younger models — from his Manhattan penthouse's roof, according to a New York Post report.

The economist, nicknamed 'Dr. Doom' for his forecasts of the financial crisis, failed to get approval for the tub and roof deck from the Department of Buildings, the New York Post reported.
