Instructions on How to Read and Interpret This Table

* In the table above, the first column contains numerical exchanges in order (area code 516 prior to the 631 split). The second column contains the named central office (CO) corresponding to the numbered exchange of today. The third column contains the general location, if available, of the exchange.

* Any box left blank indicates a lack of information. If you know what belongs in the blank, feel free to e-mail me. Most of the information can be considered accurate, but there may be some minor mistakes which you can inform me of.

* In the first column, if the third number of an exchange contains an "x", it means that this exchange exists, but I do not have complete information on it. Also, since many of these exchanges were given to me by people remembering their old one, there is a small chance for error. The exchanges with an "x" in them are probably the most inaccurate. An exchange without an "x" in it has been checked and is correct.

* Thank you for visiting this page. If you have any questions, please e-mail me. Also, if you feel you can contribute to this project, please contact me. I will give you credit. Remember, hours of intense research went into bringing you this information! Thanks again, and enjoy!

*My information on this table was sent to the webmaster of the T.E.N. project, so the Long Island information on his site is the same as on this one. However, there are very interesting bits of information and exchange names from other places in the country on the T.E.N. Project site.
