Los Angeles Area Code 213

213 is a California local telephone area code. Area code 213 serves the downtown area and business district of the City of Los Angeles.

213 was one of the original 86 area codes created by AT&T and the Bell System in 1947. It was applied under by North American Numbering Plan administration, which introduced the area code system to the United States and Canada.

Area code 213 originally served southern California including Los Angeles. It was split in 1998, creating the overlay code 323.

Locations covered by Los Angeles 213 include Bell Gardens, Huntington Park, Los Angeles, Montebello, and Westmont. Other smaller portions of Los Angeles County are also covered.

The state of California originally had only three area codes. The new code was rolled out in 1998 as an overlay, to serve the remainder of central Los Angeles.

The reason for this was the growing population within this region. Essentially, central LA was running out of area codes. An “overlay” is a new area code that is implemented to cover the same geographic area as an existing one. Overlay codes are commonly used when existing area codes near depletion.

Since this change, the 213 telephone number code has covered only the downtown LA area and adjacent regions. 213 actually covers one of the smallest geographic regions in the entire United States by square miles. Both LA landline and cell phone numbers use the 213 code.

Downtown Los Angeles and the business district area are experiencing a cultural revival. It’s become a hip locale, with a variety of businesses and residents moving in. There are thriving nightlife spots, restaurants, art galleries, local and international businesses in this neighborhood.

The overall population of Los Angeles is approximately 4 million residents. Locations covered by 213 fall within the Pacific Time Zone.
