Components: past and present[edit]

The 25th District was a Westchester/Rockland seat in the 1960s covering areas now in the 17th and 18th Districts.

In the 1970s it was the lower Hudson Valley district and congruent to the present 19th District. Onondaga County was split between the 32nd District (which included rural counties east of Syracuse now in the 23rd and 24th District) and the 33rd District (which included the Finger Lakes counties in the 24th and 29th Districts).

In the 1980s, the district was centered in the Utica area (now the 24th District) and the Syracuse area was entirely in the 27th District.

Beginning in 2013, the 25th district will be entirely within Monroe County, and will include the City of Rochester and surrounding suburbs.
