The New York Public Service Commission has officially announced that come April 16th, New York City will be getting a sixth area code to join 212, 718, 646, 917 and 347. The new code, 929, has been assigned to the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, and will require "all local calls within and between the 718 and 347 area codes and the new 929 area code to be dialed by using 1+10 digit dialing." This will just make the 212 area code that much cooler.
As with anything that forces old people to do things differently, the kids are to blame. Wayne Milby of the North American Numbering Plan Administration told the Post, "There are so many new uses for telephone numbers. It used to be you had a line in your home and a line for your kids. Now every child has a cellphone." We anticipate complications when guys start getting 'hos in different area codes who happen to live on the same block.
