              ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING ADMINISTRATIVE APPEAL UNDER
                              DOCKET NUMBER ART-09151-L


          On April 3,  1986  the  above-named  petitioner-tenant  filed  an
          Administrative Appeal against an order  issued  on  February  28,
          1986 by the District Rent Administrator  (Gertz  Plaza,  Jamaica,
          New York) concerning the housing  accommodations  known  as  2109
          Broadway, New York, New York, Apartment No. 17-137,  wherein  the
          Administrator  granted  Major  Capital  Improvement  (MCI)   rent
          increases for the stabilized units at the subject premises  based
          upon the modernization of the heating system at the premises.

          On appeal, the petitioner-tenant contends, in substance, that:

               (A)   No  benefit  or  improved  service  had   been
                    provided to the tenants;

               (B)  in fact, the heat and hot water  services  have
                    been reduced; and

               (C)  the work has not been done pursuant  to  proper
                    governmental  approvals  and  plans  have   not
                    been filed.

          After a careful consideration of the entire  evidence  of  record
          the Commissioner is of the opinion that the administrative appeal 
          should be terminated.


          The record discloses that the contentions raised  on  the  appeal
          herein have previously been considered by the Commissioner and  a
          determination was issued on January 9, 1987 under  administrative
          review docket nos. ARL-09132-L, et al.   The  Commissioner  notes
          that although the Administrator's grant of an  MCI  increase  for
          the modernization of the heating system was affirmed,  the  owner
          was directed to  refund  to  the  petitioner  any  MCI  increases
          collected from the petitioner for MCI's completed  prior  to  his
          occupancy.







          ART-09151-L
          Thus, the instant appeal under Docket  No.  ART-09151-L  must  be
          terminated.

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the applicable  provisions  of  the
          Rent Stabilization Code and Operational Bulletin 84-1, it is

          ORDERED, that the Administrative Appeal be, and the  same  hereby
          is terminated.



          ISSUED:
