The six leading Democratic candidates for New York’s newly redrawn 10th Congressional district sparred Wednesday night over immigration, former President Donald Trump and hyper-local issues like crumbling roadways, congestion pricing and street parking rules.

The district, which stretches across Lower Manhattan and Chinatown and throughout Brownstone Brooklyn and Sunset Park, was formed after a redistricting upheaval redrew Congressional lines and created a melting-pot district with centers of influence among Asian, Black, Hispanic, Jewish and LGBTQ voters in one of the most liberal areas of the US.
