            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   
                                          

          On March 4, 1991, the above-named  owner  filed  a  petition  for
          administrative review of an order issued on February 7, 1991,  by
          a Rent Administrator concerning the housing  accommodation  known
          as Apartment 4-D at  2036  Cropsey  Avenue,  Brooklyn,  New  York
          wherein the  Administrator  found  a  decrease  in  services  and
          ordered a reduction in the maximum legal rent.

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

          On November 21, 1987 the tenant filed a complaint of decrease  in
          services,  alleging  that  his  30-year  old  kitchen  floor  was
          cracked, and that a recent paint job was deficient.

          The owner, in answer,  contended  that  the  tenant's  floor,  on
          examination, was too dirty to determine whether  there  were  any
          worn or broken tiles.

          On January 28, 1991 a physical inspection of t e  subject  apart-
          ment was carried out by the Division  of  Housing  and  Community
          Renewal (DHCR).  The inspector, in his report, noted that several 
          kitchen floor tiles were cracked and that  the  bathroom  ceiling
          and walls had evidence of peeling paint and plaster.


          On February 7, 1991, the Rent Administrator issued the order here 
          under review, finding that a diminution of services had  occurred
          and reducing the tenant's rents by $9.50, representi g  a  reduc-
          tion of $4.50 for the cracked kitchen floor tiles, and $5.00  for
          peeling paint and plaster.

          In its petition for administrative  review,  the  owner  contends
          that the subject apartment is not  rent  controlled,  and  states
          that the issue was decided under DHCR  Order  No.  ZCD  210213-S,







          FC 220032-RO
          issued July 27, 1989.

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

          The Commissioner finds that the  allegations  of  the  petitioner
          regarding the apartment's status, and regarding DHCR Docket No.
          ZCD 210213-S, are  incorrect.   DHCR  records  confirm  that  the
          subject apartment is rent controlled and the cited Docket No. ZCD 
          210213-S concerns another building.

          The Commissioner finds no basis to modify the District Rent 
          Administrator's order.

          This Order and Opinion is issued without prejudice to the owner's 
          right to file an application with the Division for a  restoration
          of rent based upon the restoration of services, if warranted.


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the New York City Rent and Eviction 
          Regulations, it is,

          ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same  hereby  is,  denied
          and that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the  same  hereby
          is, affirmed.


          ISSUED:



                                                                           
                                                ELLIOT SANDER
                                                Deputy Commissioner
