              ORDER AND OPINION DISMISSING PETITION
                    FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                                
                                
On  February 20, 1991, the above-named landlord filed a  petition
for  administrative review of an order issued on October 25, 1990
by  a District Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommo-
dation  known as 516 Henry Street, 1st Floor, Brooklyn, New  York
wherein  the Administrator determined that the subject  apartment
is  subject  to the Rent Regulations and established the  maximum
rent at $400.00 per month (pursuant to a lifetime lease).

The  aforesaid  petition was not filed within 35 days  after  the
issuance  date  of  the  order  as  required  by  the  applicable
regulations and Operational Bulletin 84-1.

The  Commissioner  finds that the explanation for  the  delay  in
filing  the petition offered by the landlord in his petition  for
review  is unacceptable.  The landlord, in his petition  for  re-
view, alleges that he saw the Administrator's order for the first
time when shown a copy by the tenant.  The evidence in the record
does not support this contention.

First, all notices and the order in this case were mailed to 2039
East 38th Street, Brooklyn, New York 11218.  This address is  the
same  one as listed by the petitioner-landlord in the deed  which
transferred  ownership of the subject building to  the  landlord.
The Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) was supplied
with  a  copy  of this deed by the landlord in his  petition  for
review.

Second,  none of the notices or the order sent to 2039 East  38th
Street,  Brooklyn, New York 11218 were returned to  DHCR  by  the
United States Post Office as undeliverable.

Finally,  it is noted that landlord does not deny that 2039  East
38th Street was his correct mailing address.

Accordingly, the Commissioner finds that the Rent Administrator's
order  was properly served upon the landlord by the Rent Adminis-
trator  and  that the landlord failed to serve his  petition  for
review  within  35  days from the date of issuance  of  the  Rent
Administrator's  order.  The Commissioner  is  therefore  of  the
opinion that the petition must be dismissed.


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

ORDERED, that this petition for administrative review be, and the
same hereby is, dismissed.

ELLIOT SANDER
