How the districts may shift
The CUNY Mapping Service has mapped the 2010 population counts by legislative district in New York, to gauge how the districts (state and Congress) may need to shift within and across regions. This does not yet account for the other issues that will play a central role in redistricting – compliance with federal statutes and court decisions, prison population counts for state & local districts, etc – but it’s an interesting first-cut analysis of what’s to come.
