The 17th was historically the East Side Manhattan district. In the 1970s it was a Staten Island seat. It became the west side Manhattan seat in the 1980s. It became a Bronx based seat in the 1992 remap and was shifted north into Rockland county in 2002 to absorb terrain from the deconstruction of the old 20th District.

Previously the 19th District covered much of the Bronx portion of the seat in the 1980s; while in the 1970s the 23rd District covered most of this area.

Election results

Note that in New York State electoral politics there are numerous minor parties at various points on the political spectrum. Certain parties will invariably endorse either the Republican or Democratic candidate for every office, hence the state electoral results contain both the party votes, and the final candidate votes (Listed as "Recap").
