The 14th District was a Brooklyn based seat until 1982 when it became the Staten Island district. In the 1992 remap it became the East Side of Manhattan district, which for most of its existence had been the 17th District. During the 1970s this district was numbered the 18th, in the 1980s it was numbered the 15th.

In fiction

In the TV series Heroes, the character Nathan Petrelli won the 14th district's congressional seat in 2006 election in a landslide, thanks to electoral fraud. He did not take the seat, however.[1]
