          ORDER AND OPINION DISMISSING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

     On December 12, 1991 the above-named petitioner-owner filed a Petition for 
     Administrative Review (PAR) against a letter dated November 7, 1991 from a 
     Rent Administrator concerning the housing  accommodations  as  110  Seaman
     Avenue,  New  York,  New  York.   Said  letter  stated  that   there   was
     insufficient basis to reopen  a  closed  proceeding  wherein  the  owner's
     application for a rent increase was denied pursuant to  an  order  of  the
     Administrator issued on May 25, 1990.

     Sections 2529.1 of the Rent Stabilization Code and Section 2208.1  of  the
     Rent and Eviction Regulations for New York City provide that an  aggrieved
     party may file a petition  for  administrative  review  against  an  order
     issued by a Rent Administrator.  A letter from a Rent  Administrator  does
     not constitute on appealable order.

     The record discloses that the Administrator's order was issued on May  25,
     1990.  The instant petition, filed on December 12,  1991,  was  not  filed
     within 35 days after the issuance date of said order as  required  by  the
     applicable Regulations and Operational Bulletin 84-1, and as set forth  in
     the Notice of Right to Administrative Review attached to said order, which 
     provides that a Petition for Administrative Review must be filed within 35 
     days after said order is issued.

     There is no provision  under  the  applicable  Regulations  permitting  an
     extension of time for the filing of a PAR.

     THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions  of  the  Rent  Stabilization
     Code, the Rent and Eviction Regulations for the City of New York,  Chapter
     403, Laws of 1983, as amended by Chapter 102, Laws of 1984, as implemented 
     by Operational Bulletin 84-1, it is

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

     ISSUED:
                                                                   
                                     JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                     Deputy Commissioner
