A 4th area code will be introduced on April 16, 2011 to cover the Bronx/Brooklyn/Queens/Staten Island area of New York City. The new area code 929 will be added to the existing area codes 347, 718 and 917 currently covering this area. There is no need for a permissive 10 digit dialing period since this part of New York City has long had 10 digit mandatory dialing.
See NANPA announcement and map of overlay complex 929/718/347/917 (in PDF format).
