                      ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING


              On October 24, 1991, the above-named owner timely filed a 
          petition for administrative review of an order issued on July 18, 
          1991 by the District Rent Administrator concerning various housing  
          accommodations in the premises known as 80 Riverside Drive, New 
          York, New York.

              Pursuant to Section 2522.6 of the Rent Stabilization Code, this 
          proceeding was initiated by the Division of Housing and Community 
          Renewal (DHCR) on April 3, 1989, to determine the rental status of 
          the subject apartments, based upon the subject owner's letter which 
          requested that the 1984, 1985 and 1986 registration statements be 
          amended.

              On July 18, 1991, the Rent Administrator issued the order under 
          review herein, which denied the subject owner's request to amend 
          the aforementioned registration statements.

              The subject owner filed a petition for administrative review of 
          the order asserting that the initial registration statement 
          mistakenly listed sixty-one hotel rooms as stabilized rooms, when 
          they were, as the owner alleges, occupied by transients, and 
          therefore the owner asserts that these rooms should not have been 
          registered as stabilized rooms.

              The Commissioner notes that the Enforcement Unit of DHCR 
          initiated a proceeding against the subject owner, under Enforcement 
          Case No. EL 510002-HM, due to the subject owner allegedly 
          submitting false ledger entrys and altered tax returns to the rent 
          agency in support of the owner's request to amend the 
          aforementioned registration statements.













          Docket No. 430376-RO
              On February 20, 1992, the subject owner and the Enforcement 
          Unit entered into a stipulation where the parties agreed, among 
          other things, that the original 1984 registration statement was 
          correct, and that the subject owner agreed to "withdraw any pending 
          petition for administrative review to the order issued July 18, 
          1991, docket number ZDD 410001-AD" (the order under review herein), 
          and not to take any further appeal of that order.  The Commissioner 
          is accordingly of the opinion that this proceeding should be 
          terminated.

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

              ORDERED, that this proceeding be, and the same hereby is, 
          terminated.

          ISSUED:



                                                                            
                                             Joseph A. D'Agosta
                                             Acting Deputy Commissioner
