           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

     On March 13, 1986 the abovenamed petitioner owner  filed  a  Petition  for
     Administrative Review against an order issued on February 13, 1986 by  the
     Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodations known as 53  West
     94th Street, Apartment 1R, New York, New York.
          
     The herein appealed order of the Rent  Administrator  denied  the  owner's
     application for a certificate of eviction for the subject rent  controlled
     apartment for his own occupancy.

     In his petition the owner, among other things, urges, in  substance,  that
     he had established an immediate and compelling necessity for occupancy  of
     the apartment in that he is residing in  a  studio  apartment  on  Horatio
     Street in the Village which is in a unsavory location for  visits  by  his
     fiance and his son by a prior marriage and that, when he  and  his  fiance
     marry, a studio apartment will not be a suitable environment where his son 
     can visit them and stay overnight.
                                                   
     The Commissioner notes that the RAR-9 acknowledgment form which was mailed 
     to owner, at his Horatio Street address was returned by  the  Post  Office
     marked "Moved Left No Address".

     The Commissioner is of the opinion that the petition should be denied.

     The record  discloses  that  the  owner  is  no  longer  residing  in  the
     accommodation  whose  alleged  unsuitability  was  the   basis   for   his
     application.

     The  Commissioner  is  also  of  the  opinion  that  the  owner  had   not
     established an immediate and compelling necessity within  the  meaning  of
     the Rent and Eviction Regulations since he was not married and his son was 
     not residing with him.

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

     ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is,  denied  and  that
     the order of the Rent Administrator be, and the same hereby is affirmed.

     ISSUED:

                                                                          
                                                    ELLIOT SANDER
                                                   Deputy Commissioner
