          ------------------------------------X 

                  ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PROCEEDING ON APPEAL

          The   above-named   petitioner-tenant   filed   a   Petition   for
          Administrative Review against an order issued on October 23,  1986
          by the Rent Administrator concerning housing accommodations  known
          as 322 Spring Street, Apartment 2, New York, New York.

          The  petition  had  previously  been  dismissed  as  untimely  but
          subsequently found timely and the proceeding reopened.

          The herein appealed order of the Rent Administrator dismissed  the
          tenant's complaint of  overcharge  and  found  the  apartment  not
          subject to regulation because the building contained less  than  6
          apartments and this apartment had been  decontrolled  by  a  prior
          order issued on December 22, 1961 (R40110).

          The  Commissioner  notes   that   the   Rent   Administrator   has
          subsequently reopened the  proceeding  based  on  allegations  and
          submissions  by  the  tenant  contesting  the   applicability   of
          abovenoted 1961 order  to  the  subject  apartment  and  that  the
          proceeding is currently still pending at the District Rent  Office
          level.

          This proceeding is, therefore, being  remanded  for  consolidation
          therewith.

          THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent and Eviction Regulations  for  New
          York City, it is

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, granted to 
          the extent of remanding this proceeding to the Rent  Administrator
          for further processing in  accord  herewith.   The  order  of  the
          Administrator is  stayed  and  the  apartment  deemed  subject  to
          control until a new order is issued on remand.,  The Administrator 
          may also issue any interim orders necessary to preserve the rights 
          of the parties.

          ISSUED:
                                                                         
                                                  ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
