New York 212 Area Code

Area code 212 serves Manhattan, New York City. Area codes 212, 646, and 332 are all area codes in the North American Numbering Plan for most of the borough of Manhattan in New York City.

These area codes are overlaid by area code 917. New York 917 covers the entirety of New York City. By geographic area, Manhattan is one of the smallest numbering plan areas, but also one of the highest density by population. Nearby codes include 201 New Jersey, and 914 Yonkers.

The NANP is responsible for standardizing telephone dialling formats in the United States and Canada. It divided the territory and assigned each geographical region a three-digit prefix. Mexico does not follow the same numbering plan format.

Each individual telephone number in the US/Canada is assigned a seven-digit phone number. These seven-digit numbers are unique only within their respective area codes, and can be repeated in other ones. This applies to both cell phones and landlines. All phone companies in Canada and the US use the same phone number format.

Manhattan is one of the five boroughs of New York City. The other four boroughs are Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island.

Area code 212 includes the famous neighbourhoods of Chelsea, Midtown, the Upper East Side, the Lower East Side, Greenwich Village, the Financial District, East Village, Little Italy, Chinatown, and many more. Central Park is also located on the island of Manhattan, as is the Empire State Building.

Area code 332 was the fourth code launched to serve Manhattan; it debuted on June 10, 2017. The reason for the addition of Manhattan 332 was the exhaustion of the original 212.

As of 2010, the supply of 212 numbers had been fully depleted. However, 646 and 332 numbers are frequently available. New York 917 numbers are also popular choices.

The region covered by the 212 area code is located in the Eastern Time Zone. The population of Manhattan is 1.629 million.

If you’re in a New York state of mind, you can’t beat a Manhattan local number from Hushed!
