New York's 9th Congressional District is a congressional district for the United States House of Representatives in New York City. It includes parts of southern Brooklyn and south central Queens. In Queens, the 9th includes the neighborhoods of Forest Hills, Maspeth, Fresh Meadows, Glendale, Howard Beach, Kew Gardens, Kew Gardens Hills, Middle Village, Ozone Park, Rego Park, Rockaway Beach, and Woodhaven. Its Brooklyn section includes Flatlands, Gerritsen Beach, Marine Park, Midwood, Mill Basin and Sheepshead Bay. It has been represented by Democrat Anthony D. Weiner since 1999.

The district, like almost all districts encompassing New York City, is Democratic, although significantly less so than the districts surrounding it. In order to accommodate surrounding districts with majority black or hispanic populations (the 6th, 10th, 11th and 12th), it has been gerrymandered to consist of middle-class majority white-ethnic neighborhoods (the district as a whole is 71% Caucasian, 14.5% Asian, 13.6% Hispanic and 4% African-American). The district includes large Jewish, Italian, and Irish populations.
