         GEORGE MOHR,                       DOCKET NO.: AI 130133-OM
                           PETITIONER    :

           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

     On  April  29,   1989   the   above-named   petitioner-tenant   filed   an
     administrative appeal against an order issued on April  11,  1989  by  the
     District Rent Administrator, 92-31 Union Hall Street,  Jamaica,  New  York
     concerning  the  housing  accommodations  known  as  44-08  47th   Avenue,
     Woodside, New York, Apartment C5, wherein the Administrator granted  major
     capital improvement (MCI) rent increases for the controlled and stabilized 
     apartments in the subject premises based on the installation  of  aluminum
     windows.

     The landlord commenced the proceeding below by filing its MCI  application
     on September 26, 1986.

     The tenant was served with a copy  of  the  owner's  application  and  was
     afforded an opportunity to review it and comment thereupon.

     The petitioner-tenant did not file an objection to the owner's application 
     although afforded an opportunity to do so.

     Thereafter, the Rent Administrator issued  an  order  on  April  11,  1989
     finding that the installation qualified as a major capital improvement and 
     adjusting the rents accordingly.

     On appeal,  the  petitioner-tenant  states,  in  substance,  that  a  rent
     increase for window installation had been previously issued.

     In response to the tenant's petition, the owner filed an  answer  stating,
     in substance, that the MCI for the new windows in  the  building  had  not
     previously been applied for.

     After a careful  consideration  of  the  entire  evidence  of  record  the
     Commissioner is of the opinion that the administrative  appeal  should  be
     denied.

     The tenant's allegation that a rent increase for window  installation  had
     previously been granted is not supported by the evidence  of  record.   In
     addition, a check of Division records  discloses  that  no  rent  increase
     based on the installation of aluminum windows had been  previously  issued
     for the subject premises.








          DOCKET NUMBER: DD 110388-RT
     On the basis of the entire evidence  of  record,  it  is  found  that  the
     Administrator's order is correct and should be affirmed.

     THEREFORE, in accordance  with  the  applicable  provisions  of  the  Rent
     Stabilization Law and Code, the Rent and Eviction Regulations for the City 
     of New York, and Operational Bulletin 84-1, it is

     ORDERED, that the administrative appeal be, and the same hereby is denied; 
     and that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is affirmed.

     ISSUED:




                                                                   
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                      Acting Deputy Commissioner
