The Gerrymandering Edition:

SD-12
It stretches from 21st Drive in Astoria all the way past Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn and abuts the Belt Parkway. [Latfor.state.ny.us]
State Senator Michael Gianaris, the “main architect of Democratic campaign strategy,” is drawn into a district with fellow Democrat Jose Peralta. [Ken Lovett]
Gianaris compares Republicans’ redistricting efforts to those of former House Speaker Tom Delay, who wound up in jail. [Nick Reisman]
SD-16
The oddly shaped district in Queens is 51 percent Asian. [latfor.state.ny.us]
Call it “The Long Island Expwy Jigsaw Piece?” [Ilya Maritz]
Or an ink blot. [Brendan McHugh]
SD-19
The home of City Councilman Lew Fidler, the Democrat running for the seat vacated by Carl Kruger, is now inside the district represented by Democratic leader John Sampson. [Latfor.state.ny.us]
"Disgustingly partisan," is how Fidler describes the maps. [Colin Campbell]
SD-20
Incumbent Democrat Eric Adams would have to move to avoid having a primary with fellow Democrat Velmanette Montgomery. [Liz Benjamin]
The district goes from Crown Heights through South Slope and into Sunset Park. [Latfor.state.ny.us]
SD-23
The home of David Storobin, the Republican candidate running for the seat Carl Kruger vacated, is now in the district represented by Democrat Diane Savino. [Latfor.state.ny.us]
SD-29
"So who lives on 5th Avenue between 69th Street and 70th Street?" [Josh Baro]
SD-31
It includes portions of 225th Street and, amazingly, portions of West 26th Street and 9th Avenue. [Latfor.state.ny.us]
SD-40
Incumbent Republican Greg Ball is moving south. [Joseph Spector]
SD-46
It looks like “the evil Reaper spaceship.” [David King]
A “fascinating piece of map making.” Democratic incumbent Neil Breslin gets more Democratic voters. [Nick Reisman]
SD-60
For a freshman Republican who flirted with switching parties, Republicans drew a one-county district “with far fewer African-Americans.” The district in connected “by the narrowest slivers of unpopulated land along Fuhrmann Boulevard.” Not crossing county lines means endorsement decisions are kept within the county, without involvement from the state parties.
