                      ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING

               On July 7, 1987, the above-named landlord filed a petition for 
          administrative review, under Docket No. BG420385RO, of an order 
          issued on June 22, 1987 by a District Rent Administrator concerning 
          the housing accommodation known as Apartment 9, 214 Lenox Avenue, 
          New York, New York.  On July 7, 1987, the above-mentioned landlord 
          filed a petition for administrative review, under Docket No. 
          BG420387RO, of an order issued on June 19, 1987 by a District Rent 
          Administrator concerning the housing accommodation known as 
          Apartment 4, 214 Lenox Avenue, New York, New York.

               The Commissioner notes that the above-mentioned petitions 
          involve common issues of law and fact.  The Commissioner is 
          accordingly of the opinion that they should be consolidated for 
          disposition.

               This proceeding was commenced by the subject tenants filing 
          their respective overcharge complaint with the rent agency.

               In the orders under review herein, the Administrator 
          determined that the subject apartments were rent controlled, and 
          the subject apartments' legal maximum rents were noted.

               In its petitions the landlord asserts, among other things, 
          that the subject building is owned by a non-profit organization; 
          that the subject building should be exempt from rent control, and 
          that the legal maximum rents, that were noted in the 
          Administrator's orders, are not enough for the landlord to operate 
          the subject building.















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NOS. BG420385RO and BG420387RO

               In response to the landlord's petition, the subject tenant, 
          who resided in Apartment 9 of the subject building, submitted a 
          letter noting that she has moved out of her subject apartment.  
          (Docket No. BG420385RO pertains to the above-mentioned tenant.)

               In a letter, dated October 9, 1993, the subject landlord notes 
          that the tenant who resided in Apartment 9 is deceased.

               In a letter filed with the rent agency on October 19, 1993, 
          the subject landlord withdrew its petition for administrative 
          review filed under Docket No. BG420387RO.

               Based on the above-mentioned facts, the Commissioner is of the 
          opinion that the instant proceeding should be terminated as moot.

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

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

          ISSUED:




                                                                         
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA  
                                             Deputy Commissioner
