Although it’s hard to imagine now, New York City was served by only area code 212 until 1984. In 1984, the 718 area code was introduced to serve Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. Bronx and Marble Hill were removed from the 212 numbering plan and appended to 718 in 1992. New York City’s first cellular/pager area code, the 917, was introduced in the same year. All cellphone numbers issued until then were migrated to 917 area code.In 1999, two new area codes, 646 and 347 were introduced to serve Manhattan and the rest of the boroughs respectively. The sixth one (929 area code) came into effect in 2011, generating over 23 million phone numbers. Finally, in 2015, the youngest area code, 332, was introduced. New York currently has 19 area codes including 8 overlays. View the complete list of New York area codes.

How to make calls to 347 area code

There are 3 types of dialing under the NANP:
  • Seven-digit dialing (7-digit telephone number without area code)
  • Ten-digit dialing (3-digit area code + 7-digit telephone number)
  • Eleven-digit dialing or the national format (1-digit country code + 3-digit area code + 7-digit telephone number)
To make a call to a 347 area code phone number, you need to perform eleven-digit dialing (1 + 347 + 7-digit telephone number). If you are making the call from a phone number with the same area code, you can perform ten-digit dialing (347 + 7-digit telephone number).

About New York City

The Big Apple, the City that Never Sleeps, or the Capital of the World. Whatever you want to call it, New York City is an iconic destination that’s so large they had to assign numerous area codes to serve its residents. From the 212 area code to the 917 area code, there’s a lot of debate about which is best, but let’s not forget about the 347 area code. It stretches from Brooklyn all the way over to Staten Island and even the Bronx.

This means that if you’re keen on exploring the 347 area code, you can visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, marvel at the animals at the Bronx Zoo, or even check out New York City’s largest Chinatown in the Flushing neighborhood of Queens. After all, it is the City that Never Sleeps, meaning that there’s always something to do in the 347 area code.

Areas Served

The 347 area code serves all of New York City minus Manhattan Island, which is serviced primarily by the 212 and 917 area codes. While the 347 area code covers a lot of ground, you’ll find it mostly for numbers in Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens. Area codes 347, 718, and 929 are all part of an overlay plan with the 917 area code, serving 8 million people throughout New York City and the surrounding suburbs.

History of 347

The 347 area code is actually one of the newest area codes in New York City and was only used beginning in October of 1999. Stemming from the 718 area code, the 347 area code was created to further serve the millions of New York City residents and businesses that were signing up for both landline and mobile cellphone services.

This meant that newer cellphone and landline customers began to receive numbers with the 347 area code in 1999, giving it a bit of cultural significance; newer transplants to New York City oftentimes had the 347 area code while native locals and “classic” New Yorkers often clung to their 212 and 917 numbers. It wasn’t until 2009 that the New York Public Service Commission had to introduce another overlay code due to the near exhaustion of the 347 number. This means that today, you’ll find the 347 area code alongside the 718 and 929 area codes being used for New York City boroughs outside of Manhattan. Marble Hill is excluded in this, despite legally being a part of the Manhattan borough.
