Briefly from 1873 to 1875, and 1883-1885 with one representative respectively, and again from 1933 through 1945, after New York was apportioned two extra seats in the United States House of Representatives, the state elected representatives at-large, instead of from districts. For the 79th United States Congress, which began in 1945, the state redistricted its seats and assigned its 45 representatives to 45 seats, thereby eliminating At-large representation.
