           ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                 AND MODIFYING DISTRICT RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S ORDER

     On  March  5,  1987,  the  above-named  owner   filed   a   petition   for
     administrative review of an order issued  on  January  30,  1987,  by  the
     District Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodation known  as
     Apartment 15-T at 269 Grand Central Parkway, Floral Park, New York.

     The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the  record  and  has
     carefully considered that portion of the record  relevant  to  the  issues
     raised by the petition for administrative review.

     On August 7, 1984 the subject tenant filed an objection to  the  apartment
     registration, claiming, among other things, that the registration filed by 
     the owner omitted, among  other  items,  an  alarm  system  as  a  service
     provided by the owner.

     In answer the owner asserted, among other things, that the intrusion alarm 
     system had never been activated.

     In the order hereunder review, the District Rent Administrator determined, 
     among other things, that an alarm system was a  service  provided  by  the
     owner and directed that the registration be amended accordingly. 

     In  this  petition,  the   owner   requests   that   the   District   Rent
     Administrator's order be modified to reflect that an alarm system is not a 
     service which the owner is required to provide at  the  subject  premises,
     since it has never been installed.

     The Commissioner is of the opinion this petition should be granted.

     The  record  discloses  that  both  during  the  proceeding   before   the
     Administraotr and on administrative appeal, the owner specifically  denied
     that an alarm system is a service provided by  the  owner  asserting  that
     such a system had never been  installed  or  activated.   The  tenant  was
     served with a copy of the owner's petition, but did not  respond  thereto.
     Based on the tenant's failure to respond to the  owner's  assertions,  the
     Commissioner finds that an alarm system is not a service provided  by  the
     owner. 








          DOCKET NUMBER: BC 110102-RO
     The Administrator's order is hereby modified accordingly.

     THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, it is

     ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, granted  and  that
     the District Rent Administrator's  order  be,  and  the  same  hereby  is,
     modified as hereinabove indicated.

     ISSUED:















                                                                   
                                             ELLIOT SANDER
                                          Deputy Commissioner
