            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW,
                AND AFFIRMING RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S ORDER AS MODIFIED


          The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for administrative 
          review (PAR) of an order issued on February 22, 1992, concerning 
          the housing accommodations known as 45 Tiemann Place, Apartment
          2-O, New York, New York, wherein the Rent Administrator determined 
          the owner's application to restore rent previously reduced for rent 
          controlled tenants only per Docket No. BJ410032B. 

          The Rent Administrator partially restored the rent for rent con- 
          trolled tenants by $4.00 per month, effective March 1, 1992, based 
          on a finding that the owner had repaired the cracked lobby floor 
          tiles and marble entrance door saddle.

          On appeal, the tenant asserts that the $4.00 rent reduction was 
          erroneous as the November 2, 1988 order per Docket No. BJ410032B,
          did not decrease the tenant's rent.

          The underlying rent reduction order reduced the rents of controlled 
          tenants only.  The petitioner tenant is rent stabilized. Therefore, 
          the rent restoration order did not affect the tenant's rent.

          The order restoring rent further provided that the owner could 
          refile for rent restoration for the rent stabilized tenants and for 
          the remaining $2.00 rent reduction for rent controlled tenants when 
          repairs of the cracked sidewalk were completed.















          GC410088RT                                 



          It is noted, however, that the Rent Administrator's order per  
          Docket No. BJ420032B had found that rent reductions were not war- 
          ranted for stabilized tenants.

          The rent restoration order is amended to reflect that rent 
          restoration for stabilized tenants was not necessary as there had 
          been no underlying rent reduction.  That part of the restoration 
          order that found that rent restoration was not warranted for 
          stabilized tenants because some repairs remained to be completed is 
          rescinded. 


          THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent & Eviction Regulations for 
          New York City, and the City Rent Control Law, and the Rent Stabili- 
          zation Law and Code, it is

          ORDERED, that the tenant's petition be, and the same hereby is, 
          denied, and that the Rent Administrator's order be affirmed, as 
          modified hereinabove.
