New York State Assembly Districts Map
The once-a-decade drawing of legislative district lines has snarled in New York State, where proposals from an Albany task force are now heading for consideration by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and a court has released draft lines for congressional districts.
Our map shows each of the proposals for district lines so far: Assembly and Senate lines from the state legislative task force, and congressional lines from a special master appointed by panel of federal judges.
The revised legislative lines are very similar to those the task force proposed in January. Minor alterations include a switch of downtown Syracuse from Senate District 50 to 53 and, in Queens, the addition of a two-block section to the 12th district to include the residence of incumbent Senator Michael Gianaris, who effectively would have been forced into a primary with another Democrat.
