            ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PETITIONS ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                       AND MODIFYING THE ADMINISTRATOR'S ORDER


          On March  6,  1987,  the  above-named  petitioner-owner  filed  a
          Petition for Administrative Review against  an  order  issued  on
          February 3,  1987,  by  the  Rent  Administrator  concerning  the
          housing accommodations known as 224 Henry Street, Brooklyn,
          New York, Apartment No. 3A.

          On March 9, 1987,  the  above  named  petitioner-tenant  filed  a
          Petition against the same order.

          This proceeding was originally commenced by the  tenant's  filing
          of a complaint on December 19, 1985 alleging the owner's  failure
          to offer a renewal lease. 

          In Order issued on February 3, 1987, the Administrator found that 
          the tenants were entitled to a two year renewal lease in both  of
          their names commencing September 16, 1986 and expiring August 15, 
          1988 at a rent of $299.61, as set forth in DRO Order No. 
          K 3102242-R, issued on October 1, 1986, which had determined  the
          lawful rent in that amount.

          Subsequent to the filing  of  these  petitions  the  Commissioner
          issued an Order and Opinion under  Administrative  Review  Docket
          Number AL 21006-RO/AK 210042-RO, on June  1,  1992,  wherein  the
          Commissioner revoked the underlying Administrative Order No. 
          K 3102242-R, having found that the actual rent of $313.13 on 
          July 31, 1984 was correct, and that there were no overcharges.  

          It is also noted that the tenants have been  issued  a  lease  in
          both of their names, as directed in the order here under review.

          Insofar as the owner has continued to  offer  a  lease  for  both
          signatory tenants, and does not contest this part of the  subject
          order in his petition, such issue is moot.

          The  subject  order  is  hereby  modified  to  conform   to   the
          Commissioner's determination of the lawful rent in the PAR issued 
          on June 1, 1992 under Docket No. AL 210066-RO/AK 210042-RO.






          BC 210125 RT; BC 210011-RO

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

          ORDERED, that the petitions of the tenant and the owner  be,  and
          the same hereby are, terminated as moot, and the  Administrator's
          order is modified in accordance with the order and opinion issued 
          under Docket Number AL 210066-RO/AK 210042-RO.

          ISSUED:



                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Acting Deputy Commissioner
