@ duff
"HN" would have been "46"; likely was actually "IN"(gersoll)

You're welcome!
So - after all these years - now you know :-)

I'm old enough to still be able to reflect "the Internet is amazing."

Yes, Bob, Henry did live in Great Neck!  Thanks for the link.

Duff, did Henry live in or around Great Neck?
According to this, "HN" was a Great Neck exchange, and one of the few that didn't stand for anything.

@CJ - Right.  I still remember the phone numbers of friends I haven't called since I was 14.  Art: PR5-0025, Henry: HN6-2075.  And Grandma: UL3-2384.  The PR stood for PRimrose, the UL for ULster.  I have no idea what HN was supposed to stand for.

Still have and use mine. What amazes the young people is when I dial a number a number from memory. They couldn't tell you their very best friends number unless they use "contacts" to look it up.

It's the Law of Inverse - As phones get smarter, the users get dumber. LOL

My mom still has one...  Uses it often, too.
