New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has granted Banking Development District designation to Brentwood, an underserved minority neighborhood in Islip on Long Island.

Brentwood is the first community on Long Island to qualify as a Bank Development District since the state first created the designation in 1997 as a way to encourage banks to open branches and offer services in underserved markets.
