Jackson had been 201.  Then, 908 was created and Jackson was put in that
area code.  Soon thereafter, 732 was created and Jackson was again move
into that new code.  I stopped having business cards printed as it seemed
that every time I had new cards printed, the area code was changed. ;)

609 was, as you're probably aware, split too.  609 and 856.

There are serveral other area code now for NJ but I believe those are set
aside mostly for mobile assignment.
