February 4 in New York History

📝 On This Day 📝

Area code 917 is introduced, originally used only for cell phones. It was the first area code to be introduced overlapping an existing area code, and although primarily used for cell phones and pagers, it is now occasionally assigned to landlines in Manhattan due to the shortage of 212 numbers.
