New York's Eighth Congressional District for the United States House of Representatives is in the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens. Its current representative is Hakeem Jeffries. The majority of the 8th district's residents are African-Americans. The district's configuration changed upon the decennial redistricting prior to the 2012 election. Traditionally, it had covered much of the west side of Manhattan and western coastal sections of Brooklyn. With the new district boundaries, the district encompasses African-American and Caribbean-American Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brownsville, Canarsie, East New York and Ocean Hill, East Flatbush, along with Howard Beach, Marine Park and Mill Basin and mixed neighborhoods like Clinton Hill, Fort Greene, Ozone Park, and Coney Island.
