About Manhattan

As the only area code in New York City that strictly serves Manhattan, 646 covers as many diverse neighborhoods as there are people in the city that never sleeps -  over seventy neighborhoods in about 22 miles to be almost-exact. Such popular locations include the business-savvy Financial District, the ever-crowded tourist destination of Midtown Manhattan, where you can find Times Square and the Empire State Building, and Chelsea, home to some world’s most famous creative artists and over 200 art galleries.

Areas Served

The 646 area code number serves both landlines and cell phones for most of the borough of Manhattan, excluding Marble Hill. This includes over seventy neighborhoods from Uptown to Downtown, including hot spots such as Greenwich Village, SoHo, Herald Square, and Tribeca.

The History of 646

The History of 646

Area code 646 is just one of four area codes that cover the population-dense Manhattan. As New York City headed for the millennium, more than 50,000 new Manhattanites flooded the area between 1990 and 2000. This surge in population brought along the necessity of a new area code, and thus the introduction of the 646 area code.

While some long-time New Yorkers may claim 646 is just an overlay for the highly coveted 212, the increase in popularity of cell phones, combined with the desire for an authentic New York area code since the institution of the 646 area code, has meant that it’s numbers have been devoured. In fact, 646 numbers are predicted to run out in 2020, just 20 years after their introduction.
