About Daniel L. Squadron

Elected to the New York State Senate in Nov. 2008, Daniel Squadron is serving his first term in the 25th Senatorial District. His district includes Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Vinegar Hill, DUMBO, Fulton Ferry, Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens,

Gowanus and the Columbia Waterfront, and the Manhattan neighborhoods of Tribeca, Battery Park City, the Lower East Side, Chinatown, the Financial District, Little Italy, SoHo and the East Village.

Squadron served as a top aide to U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer, and together with Schumer co-authored “Positively American: Winning Back the Middle Class Majority One Family at a Time.”  As communications director for the campaign to pass the Rebuild and Renew Transportation Bond Act, Squadron worked to secure nearly $3 billion in infrastructure improvements and expansion to our subways and buses.

Squadron’s paternal grandfather came through Ellis Island and was raised on Ludlow Street; his father rose from poverty to become the Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. His maternal grandfather was a World War II veteran and Brigadier General in the Air Force. His mother volunteered during the Mississippi Freedom Summer of 1964 and was a top staffer at the American Civil Liberties Union.

A graduate of Yale University, Squadron lives in Carroll Gardens.
