Ladies and gentlemen, as of today, I am the proud owner of a highly coveted 212 area code phone number. These numbers are hard to come by nowadays and getting one to use is very rare for new phone subscribers.

Also, this is an interesting fact from Wikipedia:

New York City was given area code 212, one of the original area codes when they were assigned in 1947, because it is the area code that could be dialed fastest with a rotary dial given the numbering plan.

Neat! Never knew that!
