                                 PETITIONER   :  
          ------------------------------------X 

                ORDER AND OPINION REOPENING PROCEEDING AND GRANTING 
                     PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW IN PART

               On  September  4,  1987  an  Order  and   Opinion   Reopening
          Proceeding and Granting Petition for Administrative Review in Part 
          was issued.  On October 8, 1987 the above named petitioner filed a 
          Petition for Administrative Review of that Order and Opinion which 
          concerned the housing accommodation known as 499  Fort  Washington
          Ave., Apt. 1C, New York, N.Y.

               In its petition the owner asserted  that  the  Commissioner's
          rental computations arrived at in  the  reopened  proceeding  were
          incorrect; specifically, the Commissioner used an  incorrect  base
          rent of $415.69 in calculating the increase  for  the  lease  term
          beginning July 1, 1982, failed to take into account  retroactivity
          of the MCI increase, and failed  to  take  into  account  the  MCI
          amount in the final calculation of the lawful stabilization  rent.

               Pursuant to Section 2529.1 of the Rent Stabilization Code, an 
          order  of  the  Commissioner  is  not  reviewable  under  the  PAR
          procedure.  However, given the fact that on a prior occasion there 
          has been a  reconsideration  to  correct  miscalculations  in  the
          Commissioner's order, the Commissioner is of the opinion that this 
          petition is akin to a letter requesting reconsideration  and  will
          be treated as such.   The  Rent  Calculation  Chart  contained  in
          Administrative Review Docket No. ARL 12194-U is hereby amended  in
          accordance with the attached rent calculation chart.   

               The Commissioner notes that the figure of $415.69  which  was
          used in the calculations for the  lease  term  beginning  July  1,
          1982 is in fact a typographical error.   The  figure  should  read
          $415.35 and such change has no effect on the  calculation  of  the
          lawful stabilized rent for that lease period.     




               For lease period beginning July 1,  1985  the  Commissioner's
          order failed to give credit for the MCI increase granted effective 






          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: BJ 410346-RO
          July 1, 1985.  While the order granting the MCI increase  includes
          a retroactive portion, the Commissioner notes that  MCI  increases
          become part of the base rent on the effective date of the increase 
          and have no retroactive effect on base rent.

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

               ORDERED, that this proceeding be, and  the  same  hereby  is,
          reopened; that the petition be, and the same hereby is, granted in 
          part; that the Order and Opinion issued September 4, 1987 be,  and
          the same hereby is, amended to the  extent  of  recalculating  the
          amount of rent overcharge collected as set forth  in  the  annexed
          Rent Calculation Chart,  which  recalculation  reduces  the  total
          amount of the overcharge to $31.35 plus excess  security  of  $.25
          for a total overcharge from July 1,  1978  to  June  30,  1987  of
          $31.55. 

          ISSUED:






                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH D'AGOSTA
                                          Deputy Commissioner
