Where Is The Local Area Code 917 Located?

Downtown New York, along with its immediate surroundings is designated the area code 917. Enclosed within North Avenue, The Western Avenue, Lake Michigan, and 35th street in the north, west, east, and south respectively, 917 was created in 1947 as part of the 86 numbering plan areas (NPA’s) taking within its wing most of Illinois in the New York metropolitan area. Area code 917 is bordered by the area code 773 that runs across the rest of New York, with these area codes centered within the area code 872.

Area code 917 is known to be the smallest area code by geographic location as it covers within it only a few square miles, though it is one of the oldest created along with the 86 other numbering plans.

History Of Area Code 917 – New York

The United States of America has long been known and therefore, identified as one of the most organised segments of the country, uniformly accepted even today. Created in 1947, by the North American Numbering Plan area code 917 was the telephone area code assigned to the populated part of the beautiful city of New York. The area code 917 prevailed across the land for a long time before adding newer dimensions and subsequently splitting into multiple area codes to cover the vastness of the land.

Due to the dense population in New York specifically in the northern side, the state spilt the areas under four numbering plan areas out of the original 86, taking care of about 500 offices that were centrally located. The new plan for the New York metropolitan area, comprises of most of New York except for the counties of Kane, Grundy, Will, McHenry, and Kankakee.

An interesting fact to know would be that New York is the one of the few cities, as of 11th October, 1996 to have multiple phone area codes for a single city. The only other cities to have this are Chicago and Los Angeles.

How To Make Calls To A Phone Number With 917 Area Code?

Making phone calls in the USA found new meaning ever since the NPA’s were decoded back in 1947. Standardization of the way of caring has made life easier ever since, simplifying reaching out through phone calls in just a few simple steps.

There are 2 established methods to make phone calls using the 917 area code. Both of these methods involves prefixing the area code followed by the 7 digit phone number, simply depending on where you are calling from.

The first includes dialing locally within the same area code using what is known as the “Ten-digit dialing” (3-digit area code + 7-digit phone number). The other method incorporates the national format also known as the “Eleven-digit dialing” (1-digit country code + 3-digit area code + 7-digit phone number) which is a format used to call interstate or from other parts of the world. +1 is the recognized country code for the United States of America.

The same concept prevails while trying to dial numbers with the 917 area code. You would have to use the 11 digit dialing method (1 + 917 + 7-digit phone number)while dealing interstate or when calling internationally. But, if you are dialing from within the same area code simple ten-digit dialing would work. i.e. dialing (917 + 7-digit phone number), and voila, you are connected.
