New York's 14th congressional district is a congressional district for the United States House of Representatives located in New York City, represented by Democrat Joe Crowley until January 3, 2019, when his current term ends. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated him in the 2018 Democratic primary; she was elected on November 6, 2018 and is currently the district's U.S. Representative-elect.

The district includes the eastern part of the Bronx and part of north-central Queens. The Queens portion includes the neighborhoods of Astoria, College Point, East Elmhurst, Jackson Heights and Woodside. The Bronx portion of the district includes the neighborhoods of Morris Park, Parkchester, Pelham Bay, and Throgs Neck as well as City Island. Roughly half of the population of the district is of Hispanic or Latino heritage, making it one of the more Latino districts in New York. Before redistricting for the 2012 election, much of the area was in New York's 7th congressional district.

From 2003 to 2013, the district encompassed most of the East Side of Manhattan, all of Roosevelt Island and the neighborhoods of Astoria, Long Island City and Sunnyside in Queens, including Museum Mile, all of Central Park and the headquarters of the United Nations.

The district was a Brooklyn-based seat until 1982 when it became the Staten Island district. In 1992 it became the East Side of Manhattan district, which for most of its existence had been the 17th district. In 2012, the district shifted to the former territory of the 7th district in Queens and the Bronx.
