Government Shuts Down Wild Roubini Hot Tub Parties

NyPo reports:
“Dr. Doom” economist Nouriel Roubini has been forced to remove his giant hot tub — famed for being packed with hot young models at his wild parties — from the roof of his Manhattan penthouse by the city.

Roubini, dubbed Dr. Doom for predicting the financial crisis, ran afoul of the Department of Buildings after he did not get approval for the tub, large enough to hold 10, and the wooden roof deck he had built at his East First Street bachelor pad for his boisterous bacchanals.

Now Roubini has been slapped with a violation and was ordered to remove the Jacuzzi, the deck and a party room he built, complete with a bar and bathroom, on the roof of his party penthouse.
Note to Nouriel: Austrian economists, who are almost all libertarians, would have no problem with your hot tub.

Here's the complaint, via BI:

  1. How do you know libertarians wouldn't have a problem with the hot tub? Could it be too large for the roof to handle, thus posing a danger to other tenants? Aside from the government, did he violate any contract with the owners of the building?
