In 2019, Newsday published the results of its three-year investigation into housing discrimination on Long Island. Using undercover testers, the series showed that people of color seeking to buy homes risked unequal treatment in 40% of tests. The stories cited real estate agents whose tests revealed evidence they violated fair housing standards, in the assessment of two fair housing experts. The findings prompted the New York Department of State to launch its own investigations.

Now, more than four years later, Newsday has compiled a searchable database that shows what penalties New York State meted out based on evidence from the Long Island Divided probe. The information is drawn from Department of State hearing and appeal documents and other public records, as well as Newsday’s previous reporting. 

This database was published on Feb. 15, 2024. Images of agents were obtained from Newsday's undercover footage featured in the 2019 investigation, Long Island Divided.
