State Assemblywoman Grace Meng (D-Flushing) is set to trade in her title, taking the spot of U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-Bayside) in Congress, but she will not get his office.

The longtime lawmaker enjoyed a highly coveted space in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill. When Meng makes the trip to be sworn in Jan. 3, she will join other first-time congressional members in the nearby Longworth House Office Building.
