The History of New York City Area Codes

In 1947, AT&T assigned 212 as the area code for New York City. On September 1, 1984, the New York Public Service Commission assigned 718 as the area code for Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. Manhattan and The Bronx kept 212 as their area code. On July 1, 1992, the 718 area code expanded to include The Bronx and Marble Hill, a small neighborhood originally attached to Manhattan.

Manhattan Area Codes

In 1992, a new area code, 917, overlaid the entire city, and on July 1, 1999, area code 646 overlay area code 212 in Manhattan. Finally, on June 10, 2017, area code 332 became active as the fourth Manhattan area code (212, 646, 332, and 917).

Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and The Bronx Area Codes

Since 1992, 718 and 917 were area codes in the four boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and The Bronx. On October 1, 1999, area code 347 became an overlay to 718. Finally, on April 16, 2011, area code 929 became the fourth area code in the four boroughs (718, 347, 929, and 917).

The Mystique of the 212 Area Code

The 212 area code is a status symbol to many and a business coup to companies that get a New York City virtual phone number. It says to callers that a company has offices in New York City, be they physical or remote. Area code 212 is highly coveted. There is a $150 setup fee required to get a 212 virtual number from Global Call Forwarding. People are selling them on eBay and Craigslist. The most expensive is reputed to be $30,000 because it is a memorable number.

The Bronx Loves the 347 Area Code

Apparently, residents of the outer boroughs love area code 347. Amazon Fashion offers a tee-shirt emblazoned with “The Bronx” and “347”. Amazon also sells acrylic serving trays and puzzles prominently displaying “347.” TP Apparel sells onesies, tee shirts, hoodies, tank tops, phone cases, pillows, and baseball shirts with “347” emblazoned upon them.
