New York's 11th Congressional District is a congressional district for the United States House of Representatives in New York City. It is currently represented by Republican Michael Grimm. The 11th district includes all of Staten Island and parts of southern Brooklyn, including the neighborhoods of Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Dyker Heights, and Gravesend. Politically, it is the most conservative district in New York City, the only district in the city which leans towards the Republican Party in national elections, and the only district covering part of the city to be represented by a Republican. The district has significant Jewish, Irish-American, Russian-American, and Italian-American populations. From 2003-2013, the district was located entirely in Brooklyn, and had a majority African-American population. Most of the old 11th is now the 9th District. Prior to 2013, most of the territory currently in the 11th had been the 13th District. The district was the subject of The Colbert Report's Better Know a District segment on December 15, 2005 and September 4, 2012. (More from Freebase)
