     APPEAL OF                                 ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                           :   DOCKET NO. BG210233RT
            EMANUEL SMALL,                     DISTRICT RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                           :   DOCKET NO. AI220043R


     On July 9, 1987, the above-named tenant filed a petition for administrative 
     review of an order issued on June 22, 1987 by a Rent Administrator 
     concerning housing accommodations known as Apartment E-6, 320 Ocean Parkway, 
     Brooklyn, 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 review.

     This proceeding was commenced by the subject tenant filing a "Statement of 
     Violations," which alleged that the subject landlord had incorrectly 
     registered the tenant's 1986 rent.

     In the order under review herein, the Administrator determined, among other 
     things, that the subject tenant's maximum rent effective on January 1, 1986 
     was $301.85 per month; that the tenant maximum rent effective on February 3, 
     1986 was $342.30 per month, and that the subject tenant's maximum rent 
     effective on January 1, 1987 was $367.97 per month.

     The subject tenant's petition asserts that the Administrator in establishing 
     the maximum rent did not take into account the rent agency's Order issued on 
     August 14, 1986, under Docket No. KC003075S, which reduced the subject 
     tenant's maximum rent by $4.00 per month, effective on the first rent 
     payment day after the issuance of the above-mentioned order.  As a result, 
     the tenant asserts, that the maximum rent effective on January 1, 1987 
     should be $365.91 per month, and not $367.97.

     After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion that this 
     proceeding should be terminated.

     The Commissioner notes that by a subsequent order issued on May 23, 1988 by 
     the District Rent Administrator under Docket No. BF220611R, the subject 
     apartment's maximum rent was listed as follows:

          DOCKET NO.:  BG210233RT

               Effective Date                      Maximum Rent

              January 1, 1983                        $320.35
              January 21, 1985                       $279.90
              January 1, 1986                        $300.89
              February 3, 1986                       $341.34
              August 14, 1986                        $337.34
              January 1, 1987                        $366.64

     The record reflects that there was no petition for administrative review of 
     the above-mentioned Administrator's order (Docket No. BF220611R).

     The Commissioner finds that the Administrator's order under Docket No. 
     BF220611R is a final determination of the rent agency.  The Commissioner 
     further finds that Docket No. BF220611R supersedes the Administrator's order 
     under review herein.

     Accordingly, the Commissioner is of the opinion that the instant proceeding 
     should be terminated as moot.

     THEREFORE, in accordance with the City Rent and Rehabilitation Law and the 
     Rent and Eviction Regulations, it is 

     ORDERED, that this proceeding be, and the same hereby is, terminated.


                                                      JOSEPH D'AGOSTA
                                                 Acting Deputy Commissioner
