This one was spotted in east midtown around 35th Street. If we knew the name of the elevator company, we could figure out which one. But alas, no trace of the name could be found. Like its counterparts in the South Village, Carroll Gardens, and the North Bronx, the long-established Italian neighborhood in East Williamsburg , with its old-school shops and storefronts, is shrinking.

They no longer use the LOngacre exchange on signs or in advertising, but they could: their current phone number is the same as it is on this 19th Street plate. This chain link fence sign was spotted near Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village. The NI exchange is for a Brooklyn name: Nightingale. MU is Murray Hill—which makes sense, since this plaque was found laying low on the side of a building in the East 40s.

Olliver 8 was the prefix for our town until the late 60's. Now, we have changed area codes 3 times due to number overlap. FRanklin 4? Sounds like the 5 town area.

My father and grandfather had to make a reservation with the phone company to call us at a pre-arranged time and place in Anaheim!
