The blue region is New York state; the red region is area code 914.

Area code 914 is a telephone area code in Westchester County, New York.

914 was among the original area codes, which were announced in October 1947. It originally was assigned to the New York state side of the New York metropolitan area outside of New York City itself, which was assigned 212. The 914 code originally included Nassau, Suffolk, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan and Delaware counties, plus Westchester. In 1951, Nassau and Suffolk were transitioned to area code 516, while the northern portion of the New York area remained as 914.

Due to the growing popularity and commercialization of cell phones and internet dial-up connections, 914 was split on June 5, 2000. Westchester retained 914, while the rest of the region became 845. Cellular phones with 914 before the division kept 914.
