The 5th congressional district of New York is a congressional district for the United States House of Representatives, represented by Democrat Gregory Meeks. Most of the district is in Queens, but a small portion is located in Nassau County. A plurality of the district's population is African-American, and a majority of the district's population is non-white.

The district includes the entire Rockaway Peninsula as well as the Queens neighborhoods of Broad Channel, Cambria Heights, Hollis, Jamaica, Laurelton, Queens Village, Rosedale, Saint Albans, Springfield Gardens, and South Ozone Park, as well as John F. Kennedy International Airport. In Nassau County, the district covers Inwood and parts of Valley Stream and Elmont.

Various New York districts have been numbered "5" over the years, including areas in New York City and various parts of upstate New York.

History

From 2003–13, the district consisted of northeastern Queens County and northwestern Nassau County. The Queens portion of the district included the neighborhoods of Bayside, Corona, Douglaston, Flushing, Jamaica Estates, Little Neck, and Whitestone. The Nassau portion of the district included Albertson, Great Neck, Manhasset, Port Washington, Roslyn, and Sands Point.

List of members representing the district

Prior to 1992 the 5th District was centered on the south shore of Nassau County including towns mostly now in the 3rd and 4th District. The Queens portions of the 5th had been previously primarily in the 8th District of the 1980s. In general, the present 5th District greatly mirrors the 6th District from 1972 to 1982. The 1990s version of this district included northeast Nassau and northwest Suffolk counties; these areas were placed in the 2nd and 3rd District in 2002 and the 5th District gained areas in Queens formerly in the 18th District.
