The 1st Congressional District of New York is a congressional district for the United States House of Representatives in eastern Long Island. It includes most of Central and Eastern Suffolk County, including most of Smithtown, as well as the entirety of the towns of Brookhaven, Riverhead, Southold, Southampton, East Hampton, and Shelter Island. The district encompasses extremely wealthy enclaves such as the Hamptons, middle class suburban towns such as Selden, Centereach and Lake Grove, working-class neighborhoods such as Mastic, Shirley, and Riverhead and rural farming communities such as Mattituck and Jamesport on the North Fork. Democrat Tim Bishop has represented the district since 2003. The district was a battleground, as President George W. Bush defeated challenger John Kerry by less than a percentage point in 2004, while in 2008, President Barack Obama defeated John McCain 52%–48%. In 2012, New York underwent redistricting, and the 1st District was slightly modified. (More from Freebase)
