The 20th congressional district of New York is a congressional district for the United States House of Representatives in New York's Capital District. It includes all of Albany and Schenectady counties, and portions of Montgomery, Rensselaer, and Saratoga counties.

From 2003 to 2013, the 20th district surrounded the Capital District, which had been part of the 21st district. This district included all or parts of Columbia, Dutchess, Delaware, Essex, Greene, Otsego, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Warren, and Washington counties. It included the cities of Glens Falls and Saratoga Springs. This largely rural district stretched to include parts of the Adirondacks, Catskills and Hudson Valley.

On November 2, 2010, Republican Chris Gibson defeated first term incumbent Democrat Scott Murphy, and took office on January 3, 2011. In 2013, Gibson was redistricted to the 19th. Democrat Paul Tonko now represents the district after redistricting.
