Additional Information about 646 Area Code
Originally, all of NYC and its five boroughs came under area code 212. However, in 1984, the New York Public Service Commission divided NYC into two different numbering plan areas. This led to area code 718 covering Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Queens, while 212 was limited to Manhattan and Bronx. Then, in 1992, 718 expanded to include the Bronx and Marble Hill of Manhattan. Finally, in 1999, the 646 area code was created to overlay 212 numbers.
Among all the different area codes covering NYC, area code 212 is the most highly regarded because it was the original area code to be assigned to the area. However, due to a shortage of numbers available with 212, the 646 or the 332 area code numbers are now available in its place for business or personal use.
