Today, it covers most of northwestern Brooklyn, the Bronx, and a small portion of Queens.The 347 area code is also notable for being the first North American area code to implement Time Warner Cable's Caller ID with Name service. In February 2007, Time Warner Cable began offering the service in the 347 area code, and it has since been expanded to other area codes.
