NEW YORK (AP) - New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved plans to make the penthouse roof smaller on Robert De Niro’s Manhattan hotel.

The commission originally approved plans in 2004 for the Greenwich Hotel. The roof was not part of that design. It was built anyway and now has to be changed.

De Niro’s architect came back with a modified plan, which was approved Tuesday.

The actor was present for the vote but did not speak.

No deadline was set for making the change.

De Niro’s latest film is the psychological drama “Stone,” which opened last month. He stars as a veteran parole officer ending his career in a showdown with a manipulative inmate and seduction by the prisoner’s wife.
