- Parts of Erie
From 1893–1903 the 33rd district covered all of Erie County except the heavily settled southern portion of the city of Buffalo, New York. Even though about two-thirds of Buffalo's area was in the 33rd District, the 32nd district which had the southern third or so of Buffalo and none of the rest of Erie county had about 6000 more people than the 33rd district.
From 1885-1893 all of Niagara County and all of Erie county except Buffalo had been in the 33rd district. During this time Buffalo was the 32nd district which had 37,000 more people than the 33rd district.
The population of the 33rd's 1903–1913 area was 180,810 in 1900. The population was 0.9% black at this point.
