Area codes 732 and 848

This article relates to area codes in the United States.

Area code 732 was created on June 1, 1997, as the result of a split in New Jersey area code 908,[1] and became mandatory on December 6 of that year. The area includes Middlesex, Somerset, and Union counties in Central Jersey, and Monmouth and northern Ocean counties on the Jersey Shore.

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.[2]

The 732/848 and 908 area codes generally defines the cultural Central Jersey region while 609/856 and 973/201 generally mark South Jersey and North Jersey, respectively.
