                 ORDER AND OPINION REOPENING ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                       PROCEEDING FOR FURTHER CONSIDERATION

     On June 5, 1991, the above-named petitioner-owner  filed  a  Petition  for
     Administrative Review of an order issued on  May  1,  1991,  by  the  Rent
     Administrator of the District Rent Office located at Gertz Plaza, Jamaica, 
     NY.

     On July 3, 1991, the Commissioner issued an Order and  Opinion  dismissing
     the proceeding as  not  being  filed  within  35  days  as  set  forth  in
     Operational Bulletin 84-1.  

     Following the issuance of the order, by letter dated  June  8,  1991,  the
     petitioner-owner, by its attorney, requested that the Dismissal  Order  be
     reviewed and the  Petition  reconsidered.   The  petitioner-owner  by  its
     attorney, contended that the petition was timely  in  that  it  was  filed
     within  thirty  five  days.   In  support,  the  petitioner-owner  by  its
     attorney, submitted a copy of the receipt for  certified  mail  bearing  a
     U.S.P.S. postmark dated June 5, 1991.  

     Based on the above, it is the opinion of the Commissioner that the  filing
     of the Petition for Administrative Review by the owner complies  with  the
     thirty-five (35) day filing requirement of Operation Bulletin 84-1.

     Pursuant to Operational Bulletin 84-1,  the  Commissioner  may  review  an
     order where the order was the result of irregularity in vital matters such 
     as, in this instance, the  timely  filing  of  the  owner's  petition  for
     Administrative Review.

     Based on the foregoing, this  order  is  issued  pursuant  to  Operational
     Bulletin 84-1 based on an  irregularity  in  vital  matters  in  that  the
     Petitioner-owner timely filed its petition for Administrative Review.
     Said order revokes the July 3, 1991, dismissal and preserves  for  further
     determination the owner's petition for administrative review.

     ISSUED:


                                                                   
                                     ELLIOT SANDER
                                     Deputy Commissioner
