Area Code 516 History:
Area code 516 was officially put into service. Area code 516 was created from a split of area code 914. In 1999 area code 516 was split to form area code 631.
Area code 363 was put into service as an all services overlay of area code 516. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 363/516 overlay because different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
