          APPEALS OF                              DOCKET NOS.: CF430287RO
          JOSEPH KIZNER                           RENT
                                                  ADMINISTRATOR'S DOCKET 
                                                  NO.: BH410174OR 

               The above referenced administrative appeals have been 
          consolidated as both contain common issues of law and fact.

               The above named petitioner-owner filed a timely Petition for 
          Administrative Review against an order of the Rent Administrator 
          issued on June 1, 1988. The petition was erroneously docketed twice 
          and assigned the two docket numbers set forth above. The order 
          being appealed concerned the housing accommodations located at 332 
          West 89th Street, New York, N.Y., various apartments.  The 
          Administrator denied the owner's application for rent restoration 
          ruling that the proceeding assigned Docket No. BH410174OR was a 
          duplicate of a proceeding assigned Docket No. BF420046OR. 

               The Commissioner has reviewed the record and carefully 
          considered that portion relevant to the issues raised by this 

               The owner commenced this proceeding on May 1, 1987 by filing 
          a rent restoration application and stated, in sum, that it had 
          restored all services for which a rent reduction order bearing 
          Docket No. LC000017B had been issued.  

               The Administrator issued the order being appealed on June 1, 
          1988.  The proceeding was terminated based on the fact that the 
          owner had filed for and been granted rent restoration for the 
          conditions cited in Docket No. LC000017B in Docket No. BF420046OR.  
          The Administrator denied the owner's application in this proceeding  
          as duplicative of Docket No. BF420046OR.

               On appeal the owner raises arguments relating to the order 
          issued in Docket No. LC000017B stating, in sum, that the 
          retroactive effective date was unfair.  The petitions were served 


          on the tenants.

               After careful review of the evidence in the record, the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the petitions should be denied.

               The order appealed herein merely dismissed a duplicative rent 
          restoration proceeding.  The owner may not utilize an 
          administrative appeal from this order to attack either the 
          underlying rent reduction order or the order issued in Docket No.  
          BF420046RO.  The order being appealed, which dismissed the instant 
          proceeding as duplicative, is affirmed.

               THEREFORE, pursuant to the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, it 

               ORDERED, that these petitions be, and the same hereby are, 
          denied, and that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same 
          hereby is, affirmed.
