            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW     
                          

               On August 10, 1987, the above-named petitioner-owner filed a 
          petition for administrative review (PAR) of an order issued on July 
          24, 1987, by the Rent Administrator, concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 94-05 222 Street, Queens Village, NY, 
          various apartments, wherein the Administrator directed the 
          restoration of services but found a rent reduction unwarranted.

               The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the 
          record and has carefully considered that portion of the record 
          relevant to the issue raised by the administrative appeal.

               This proceeding was commenced by the filing of various 
          complaints in March, 1986 alleging a decrease in services.  On June 
          1, 1987 a Division employee conducted an inspection and confirmed 
          the existence of the complained of conditions which related to 
          lawn, tree, and fence maintenance.  On July 24, 1987 the 
          Administrator issued an order directing restoration of the services 
          but found that a rent reduction was not warranted.

               In the PAR, the owner denied the conditions confirmed by the 
          inspector, and contended that they either had been corrected as of 
          the date of the order, or were the result of tenant abuse.       

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

               The record presented which includes the results of an on-site 
          inspection is sufficient to confirm the conditions which gave rise 
          to the Administrator's order.  The owner has presented no evidence 
          to warrant reversal of the Administrator's determination.

          Law and Code, it is


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