            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                          

               The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for adminis- 
          trative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations relating to the above described docket number.

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

               The owner commenced the proceeding below by filing an 
          application asserting that it had restored and was maintaining 
          certain services in the subject building for which a $5.00 rent 
          reduction had been ordered on November 10, 1987 (BA 530041-B).

               In the answer, the tenant denied the allegations set forth in 
          the application and asserted that all required services were not 
          being provided.

               Thereafter, an inspection of the subject premises was 
          conducted by a DHCR inspector who confirmed that services had been 
          partially restored.

               The Rent Administrator found a restoration of these services 
          and further ordered, a $3.00 restoration of the legal regulated 
          rent.

               In the petition for administrative review, the tenant states 
          in substance, that no repairs to the windows have been made.

               After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the 
          opinion that the petition should be denied.

               The Administrator's order was properly based on the results of 
          the physical inspection which revealed that some conditions had 
          been repaired but that some of the windows in the public areas 
          still needed to be painted or otherwise repaired.  A partial rent 
          restoration was ordered and the owner was advised to apply for the 
          remaining amount when all necessary repairs are completed.  This 
          determination is not inconsistent with the tenant's statement in 
          the petition that not all repairs to the windows have been 
          completed.

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations of New York City, 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.

           ISSUED:


                                                                             
                                                  JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
