									Area code 609
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia                                                                    Coordinates: 39.971°N 74.570°W


Area code 609 serves telephones in southeastern and central New Jersey, including the cities of
Trenton, Princeton, and Atlantic City.
All of New Jersey was served at first by area code 201, until area 609 was created in a split in
1958. Before 201 was again split in 1991, New Jersey residents informally viewed area codes 201
and 609 as defining the boundaries of "North Jersey", dominated by its proximity to New York City,
and "South Jersey", dominated by its proximity to Philadelphia and the Jersey Shore.[1]
609 now covers parts of Central Jersey, South Jersey and the Jersey Shore. The southwestern part
of the state adjacent to Philadelphia is now covered by area code 856, as a result of a split in 1999,
although many parts of Burlington County are still covered under 609. Area 609 penetrates portions
of southern Middlesex County in Plainsboro, Cranbury, parts of South Brunswick (particularly
Kingston) and the extreme southern part of Monroe.

Area 609 is expected to run out of numbers by the first quarter of 2015, [2] but as of July 2012 there
are no plans for a new split or overlay.
