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 Joseph Crowley.

The district includes the eastern 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 Co-op City, Morris Park, Parkchester, Pelham Bay, and Throgs Neck as well as City Island. Before Redistricting for the 2012 election, much of this area was included in New York's 7th congressional district.

From 2003-2013, it included most of the East Side of Manhattan, all of Roosevelt Island and the neighborhoods of Astoria, Long Island City, and Sunnyside in Queens. Museum Mile, all of Central Park, and the United Nations Headquarters were located within this district.
