Comment[edit]

I say this article should be split into one article concerning 212 as an NYC area code and one considering Turkey. That would make more sense since the two area codes obviously have nothing to do with each other, and the page currently seems a little bit divided.

I think we only need a disambiguation page if there are at least two additional ambiguities. I think with only one we can just use the same page. Paul Robinson 18:45, 5 March 2006 (UTC)


The enlarged nyc metro section of the map is wrong, ct (203) is labeled 914, westchester (914) is unlabeled. Matt 19:10, 31 Jan 07 EST


Would be interesting to see information on two additional topics: the cultural impact of the area code (references in songs, movies, etc.) If you're in NY, you know how coveted it is...Remember how it was the subject of an entire episode of Seinfeld? :-))

Secondly, I'd be curious to know if it's tapped out or not. How do you get this special area code on your phone, and not 646? How is it decided if you do or you don't? Exbuzz (talk) 18:45, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

I've added a new "Perception" section. Be bold and expand on it! travisl (talk) 18:59, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

"For this reason, New York City was given an area code with five clicks, the fewest possible under NANPA's original guidelines (0 and 1 were not allowed as the first digit, the second digit was either 0 or 1, and the third digit could not be the same as the second digit)."

This is not accurate. Under this guideline, the fewest number of click possible is 201, belonging to New Jersey (this quote is the exact same language as in the description of Area Code 201). Kabeyun (talk) 19:04, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps you don't remember rotary dials on phones; 1 was one click, while 0, "after" the 9, was 10 clicks. The 0 took the longest after dialing that digit. 207.210.134.83 (talk) 17:47, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Area code 332[edit]
