            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review (PAR) of an order issued on August 9, 1988, concerning the 
          housing accommodations known as 250 Riverside Drive, Apt. 95, 
          New York, N.Y.

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

          The tenant commenced this proceeding by filing a complaint 
          asserting that the owner had failed to maintain certain services in 
          the subject apartment.

          In an answer, the owner denied the allegations set forth in the 
          complaint or otherwise asserted that all required repairs had been 
          or will be completed. 

          Thereafter, the tenant notified an inspector from this Division by 
          telephone that the water leak in the bedroom closet has been abated 
          and all repairs have been completed in a workmanlike manner, 
          resulting in the Administrator's finding that the condition had 
          been resolved.

          In the petition for administrative review, the tenant states, in 
          substance, that at the time the Division's inspector called to 
          inspect the apartment the closet was not leaking, however, the leak 
          resumed shortly thereafter.














          CH410072RT

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

          On the date of the scheduled inspection, July 12, 1988, the tenant 
          notified the inspector by telephone that the leak had been abated 
          and all repairs had been made in a workmanlike manner.  Based on 
          this telephone conversation, the on-site inspection was cancelled 
          and the inspector filed a report stating the substance of the 
          conversation with the tenant.  The Commissioner finds that the 
          Administrator's order was correct when issued and the tenant 
          presents no evidence to disturb the order.  

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code 
          and the Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974, it is

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


          ISSUED:






                                                                     
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
