BROOKLYN - An undercover sting claims to have found racial discrimination at rental apartments in Brooklyn.

New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is suing the manager and owner of 16-48 and 16-50 Ocean Parkway for allegedly violating the Fair Housing Act and other housing and civil rights laws.

Cuomo says the landlord of the building repeatedly denied access to African-American applicants trying to rent apartments, telling them housing was not available despite having open units.

Golden Touch Management, which manages the building, says it has no comment on the issue at this time.
