Area codes 732 and 848

Area codes 732 and 848

Area code 732 was created on June 1, 1997, as the result of a split in New Jersey area code 908 [Newman, Andy. [ "New Area Codes Introduced"] , "The New York Times", June 2, 1997. Accessed January 23, 2008.] , and became mandatory on December 6th of that year. The area code mostly covers the Jersey Shore region of New Jersey, with a small area of North/Central Jersey covered along with some coverage in South Jersey, particularly in Ocean County. Area code 848 is an overlay code for this region that was created in 2001 as the pool of 732 numbers began to diminish drastically. [McKay, Martha. [ "New Jersey Assigned New Area Codes."] , "The Record (Bergen County)", April 18, 2001. Accessed August 11, 2001. "The new New Jersey area codes -- 551, 356, and 848 -- were announced this week and will be introduced next year in the regions currently served by 201, 973, and 732, respectively."]

The following is a sampling of the towns covered by the area code.
