I want to be able to download all the BRS/IDX listings from MLSLI Server.

See http://www.mlsli.com/

Basically, I want to be able to have an API to this server and download all the multiple listings for Long Island.

Is there an interface where there is not a monthly fee?

Are there any applications that all ready provide this feature, that is, an interface to MLSLI?

I don't think this is a 50-point question for EE.  Are you a realtor?

Maybe contact the owners of the data:

I am looking for an application that already does this.

Also, is there a data feed that I can use for Long Island real estate where there is NOT a fee?

I don't know of anyone who publishes a free real-estate feed.  The information is too valuable to give it away.  This site appears to be a complete bust:
http://www.mls.com/

You might be able to write a script that uses CURL to post to this:

But it would be a big task, and you should get the owner's permission before you access data this way.
