New York's 10th congressional district is a congressional district for the United States House of Representatives, formerly located from 2003 to 2013 in Brooklyn, New York City, currently represented by Democrat Jerry Nadler. The district contains the southern portion of Morningside Heights, the Upper West Side of Manhattan, the west side of Midtown Manhattan, the west side of Lower Manhattan, including Greenwich Village, Tribeca, and the Financial District, and parts of Brooklyn, most notably Borough Park and parts of Bensonhurst.

With a size of 14.25 mi², the district is currently the second-smallest congressional district in the country.[3] Demographically, it includes neighborhoods in Manhattan and Brooklyn that are heavily Jewish.

From 2003 to 2013, this congressional district was exclusively Brooklyn-based and majority African-American. It included the neighborhoods of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn Heights, Brownsville, Canarsie, East New York, and Ocean Hill, as well as parts of Fort Greene, Prospect Heights, and Williamsburg.[4]

Redistricting

The 10th District was a Brooklyn-based seat prior to 1972, when that district became the 16th, and the 10th District was re-assigned to a district in northern Queens and the east Bronx. The 1980 redistricting restored the 10th District to Brooklyn (covering the same terrain). In the 1990 remap, much of the old 10th District was added to the new Queens-Brooklyn 9th District. The new 10th then absorbed much of the old 11th District, including its congressman.

Following the 2012 redistricting cycle, the district shed most of its Brooklyn territory, and picked up parts of Manhattan that had been in the 8th district.
