Our District is Assembly District 64, Part C. It is one of the most exciting, vibrant districts in the world. It extends from the East Village, Lower East Side, and the historic South Street Seaport, to Battery Park and the Financial District.
Our district includes the beautiful Statue of Liberty, a symbol of Freedom and Hope. The poet Emma Lazarus, who helped refugees escape to America from anti-semetic pogroms in Eastern Europe, wrote about the statue: “Give me your tired, your poor/your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”
Ellis Island, which is also in our district, was the historic gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States.
Rich with history, our district also includes Federal Hall, which was America’s first White House, and which includes on its steps a statue of George Washington himself.
Our district is a major center of the world’s economy, encompassing Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
The World Trade Center site and memorial is located in our district as well. Ours is a district that is strong, resilient, and united.
The vibrant and diverse Lower East Side graces our district also, including such charms as the historic Katz’s Delicatessen, a Kosher-style eatery best known for the best pastrami sandwiches and hot dogs in New York.
On the East side, overlooking the East River, our district has the historic Front Street, and South Street Seaport, with its historic cobble stone roads, and large ships that add life to the landscape.
From Battery Park City’s Gateway Plaza, to Hanover Square, to the East Village’s Village View Cooperative, to America’s first public housing project (First Houses), to South Street Seaport, our district includes a diverse community, with a rich variety of experiences. We have some of the best of what America represents.
