WAMC's David Guistina talks with Judy Patrick of the Daily Gazette about the new 838 area code coming as an overlay in the 518 area code region.

(AP) - New York regulators say the new telephone area code that will be added to eastern New York's 518 region will be 838.                                                   

The Public Service Commission last week approved the "overlay" in the 17-county region to meet demand for new phone numbers. That means existing numbers will keep the 518 area code and new ones will begin with 838.
