Politically, it is the most conservative district in New York City, the only district in the city which leans towards the Republican Party in national elections, and until 2018, it was the only district covering part of the city to be represented by a Republican. Following the 2018 election, the Republicans were left without House representation in New York City for only the second time since the 1930s. The district has significant Italian-American, Jewish, Irish-American, Russian-American, and Arab-American populations.

From 2003 to 2013, the 11th district was located entirely in Brooklyn and had a majority African-American population. Most of the territory located within the old 11th district is now located in New York's 9th congressional district. Prior to 2013, most of the territory currently located in the 11th district had been located in New York's 13th congressional district. The 11th district was the subject of The Colbert Report's Better Know a District segment on December 15, 2005 and September 4, 2012.

The 11th District is currently represented by Democrat Max Rose.[3]
