New York's 17th State Senate district is one of 63 districts in the New York State Senate. It has been represented by Democratic Senator Simcha Felder since 2013, following his defeat of incumbent Republican Senator David Storobin in 2012. Since his first election, Felder has run on both the Democratic and Republican party lines and has alternately caucused with both parties; since July 2019, he is a member of the Democratic caucus.[3] District 17 is currently the most Republican-leaning district in the State Senate to be held by a Democrat.

Geography

District 17 is located in central and southern Brooklyn, including some or all of the neighborhoods of Borough Park, Midwood, Sunset Park, Kensington, Bensonhurst, and Gravesend.[4]

The district overlaps with U.S. congressional districts 7, 9, 10, and 11, and with New York State Assembly districts 41, 42, 44, 45, 47, 48, 49, and 51.[5]
