The 13th Congressional District covers all of Harlem, bounded on the west and south by Morningside Drive and West 122nd Streets. Harlem has historically been the home to the member of Congress from this part of New York. Legendary politician Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. represented the area in Congress from the end of World War II until he was replaced by the current representative, Charlie Rangel. With a population in excess of 340,000 and an area of 3.8 square miles, Harlem is one of the most densely populated residential areas in the United States. Harlem is a community with education, housing, public transportation, and public service needs. Harlem has a vast senior population who are among the most vulnerable of America’s population. Ensuring affordable and available housing, increased access to education and child care for working families, maintaining and enhancing public transportation support, and ensuring Social Security and Medicare availability are among Mr. Fenstermaker’s priorities.
