Area code 332 becomes active to begin supplementing the dwindling amount of available 212 and 646 numbers

As of 2019, it is the city's newest area code, with 929, introduced in 2011, as the second-newest.

New York's most recent area code is 332, which was assigned to Manhattan in 2017. As of April 2020, NANPA, the organization in charge of assigning area codes, estimates that New York City's available phone numbers will begin to be completely depleted by 2030, although those estimates have been increasing as fewer new numbers have been needed in recent years. With the shift toward mobile phones and the portability of numbers, New York area codes can now travel across the country, bringing along the legacy of having once been assigned to someone living in New York City.
