What might redistricting mean for Brooklyn’s neighborhoods?


New York’s congressional, state senate, and assembly districts are set to be redrawn this year, and for the first time in history, everyday New Yorkers have had the chance to weigh in on how they think the districts should be drawn up. 

The New York Independent Redistricting Commission, the entity tasked with redrawing the state’s political boundaries, has held a series of hearings so far, including one for residents of Brooklyn and Staten Island on July 29.
