            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


               On or before September 16, 1991, the above-named owner filed 
          a petition for administrative review of an amended order 
          (henceforth referred to as DH 420733 - S*) issued on September 6, 
          1991, by a District Rent Administrator concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 160 East 65th Street, Apartment No. 4B, New 
          York, New York.

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

               On November 14, 1990, the District Rent Administrator, under 
          docket number DH 420733 - S, reduced the maximum legal rent of the 
          subject apartment based upon an inspectorial finding that there was 
          evidence of mildew on the livingroom and bedroom east walls.  

               On September 6, 1991, the Rent Administrator issued the order 
          hereunder review which amended and superseded the order issued 
          under Docket Number DH 420733 - S.  The order now known as DH 
          420733 - S*, changed the apartment's legal status from rent 
          controlled to rent stabilized, and, accordingly, changed the 
          effective date of the rent reduction.  In all other respects, the 
          order issued under docket number DH 420733 - S*, did not differ 
          from DH 420733 - S.
















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: FI 420326 RO

               On September 19, 1991, in a consolidated proceeding, issued 
          under docket numbers EL 410360 RO and EK 420339 RO, the 
          Commissioner revoked the orders issued under docket numbers DH 
          420733 - S and DI 410216 - S, based upon a finding that the tenant 
          did not provide access to the apartment for the purpose of 
          restoring services. 

               After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the 
          opinion that the petition should be granted and the order known as 
          DH 420733 - S* should be revoked.

               The Commissioner notes that given that DH 420733 - S* only 
          differs from DH 420733 - S with respect to the apartment's legal 
          status and effective date of the order, the order here under review 
          does not withstand the established fact that the tenant did not 
          provide access to the apartment for the purpose of restoring 
          services.  Thus, the Commissioner finds that the order here under 
          review was not warranted.

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

               ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, 
          granted, and that the District Rent Administrator's order be, and 
          the same hereby is, revoked.

          ISSUED:




                                                                        
                                          JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                          Acting Deputy Commissioner
