                    Howard Solomon,
                                                       RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                                       DOCKET NO.: DE210417S
                                   PETITIONER
          ------------------------------------x

           ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW,
           REVOKING RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S ORDER AND TERMINATING PROCEEDINGS

          The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review of an order issued on April 3, 1990, concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 1177 East 98th Street, Apartment 4K, 
          Brooklyn, New York, wherein the Rent Administrator determined the 
          tenant's complaint of individual services decreases.

          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 the proceeding by filing a complaint asserting 
          that the owner had failed to provide two air conditioner units.  
          The tenant asserted that he was entitled to the equipment as a 
          required service pursuant to Section 2520.6(r) of the Rent 
          Stabilization Code because the owner had provided them to all 
          tenants on the base date.

          The owner answered that "air conditioners were not installed in the 
          apartment when the tenant took occupancy" in November 1984.

          The Rent Administrator denied the tenant's request for relief, 
          citing the ground set forth in the owner's answer.

          In the petition for administrative review, the tenant reiterates 
          that he was entitled to the two air conditioner units as a required 
          service pursuant to Section 2520.6(r) of the Code.


          DHCR records reveal that the tenant's complaint herein under review 
          was duplicative of another complaint (BK210065S).  While the tenant 












          ED210355RT


          was denied relief in those proceedings, also, the Commissioner 
          granted the tenant's petition for administrative review 
          (CH210117RT), and reopened and remanded those proceedings to the 
          Rent Administrator to consider the tenant's complaint that the 
          owner was not providing two air conditioner units.  That proceeding 
          (HL210012RP) remains open and pending.

          The Rent Administrator's order (DE210417S) is revoked.  Further 
          processing in these proceedings is not necessary as the complaint 
          is duplicative of other proceedings currently pending before the 
          Rent  Administrator.

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code, 
          it is

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, granted, 
          that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is 
          revoked, and that these proceedings be, and the same hereby are, 
          terminated as duplicative, in accordance with the above.         
                   


          ISSUED:






                                                                     
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
