                                 PETITIONER  
          ----------------------------------x                      
                                                                       

            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW     
                          
               On March 1, 1993, the above-named petitioner filed a Petition 
          for Administrative Review of an order issued on January, 29, 1993 
          by the Rent Administrator, 92-31 Union Hall Street, Jamaica, NY, 
          concerning the housing accommodation known as 26 West 74 St. Apt. 
          2A, New York, NY, wherein the Administrator granted the owner's 
          rent restoration application.

               The issue in this appeal is whether the Administrator's order 
          was warranted.

               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 by the administrative appeal.

               This proceeding was commenced on November 25, 1991 by the 
          owner filing an application for restoration of rent that has been 
          reduced in an order issued on April 17, 1989 under Docket No. 
          CE430024B.

               On January 10, 1992 the Division sent the tenants a copy of 
          the owner's restoration application and afforded them an 
          opportunity to respond.

               Several tenants submitted answers conceding that conditions 
          for which the rent had been reduced were now restored.

               The Administrator's record also contains this petitioner's 
          response, dated January 31, 1992, however it does not address the 
          merit's of the owner's rent restoration application.

               On January, 29, 1993, the Administrator issued the order 
          hereunder review, granting the rent restoration application.

               In her petition for administrative review the tenant contends 
          that she was not served with a copy of the owner's application for 
          restoration of rent.

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that the tenant's petition 
          should be denied.

               The Commissioner notes that the division served a copy of the 
          restoration application on the tenants and the Administrator's 
          record does contain a response from said tenant.  Therefore, this 
          tenant's contention of not being served with the application is 
          belied by the Administrator's record.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent and Evictions 
          Regulations of New York City, it is

               ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied 
          and the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, 
          affirmed.



          ISSUED:
