  ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                
                                
On  April  27, 1987, the above-named petitioner-tenant  filed  an
Administrative Appeal against an order issued on March  25,  1987
by the District Rent Administrator (Gertz Plaza, Jamaica,
New  York)  concerning the housing accommodation known as  247-07
77th Crescent, Bellerose, New York, Apartment 19F7-1, wherein the
Administrator  granted  the owner's rent restoration  application
for the subject stabilized apartment.

The   owner   commenced  the  proceeding  below  by  filing   its
applica-tion  with the Administrator in August of  1986,  stating
that  it  had restored services for which a rent reduction  order
was issued on March 17, 1986 under Docket No. QS 000488-B.

With its application, the owner also submitted a copy of the rent
reduction  order, which was issued on the ground of  the  owner's
failure to repair stoop steps.

The  District Rent Administrator's order, appealed herein,  found
that the "brick stoop has been repaired" and restored the rent in
question.

This order was based upon a physical inspection conducted by this
Division on November 13, 1986.

On  Appeal, the petitioner-tenant contends, in substance, the her
windows have not yet been fixed.

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

The  record in the proceeding below (including a physical inspec-
tion  conducted  by this Division) discloses that  the  condition
upon  which  the rent reduction in question was based  (defective
stoop  steps) was repaired.  Furthermore, the tenant's contention
on appeal is not relevant to the instant proceeding.

On  the basis of the entire evidence of record, it is found  that
the Administrator's order is correct and should be affirmed.

This  order is issued without prejudice to any service  complaint
(pending  or  future)  by the tenant herein  which  is  based  on
defec-tive windows.


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, denied; and that the Administrator's order be, and the same
hereby is, affirmed.


ISSUED:




ELLIOT SANDER
                                         Deputy Commissioner
