From 2003-2013, the 17th district encompassed portions of the Bronx, Westchester County, and Rockland County. It included the neighborhoods of Norwood, Riverdale, Wakefield, Williamsbridge, and Woodlawn in the Bronx, the city of Mount Vernon and parts of Yonkers in Westchester, as well as Monsey, Nanuet, Pearl River, and Suffern in Rockland County.

List of members representing the district

The District 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.

1803-1833: One seat
