Zippy zip codes

September 30, 2010

Journal, They can't all be winners.

I had to put addresses on some things today, and it reminded me of this cool zip code map I saw a long time ago. I had to dust off my Google searching skills to try and find it, but it was worth it.

Go play with it and zero in on your ‘target’. I really wished I lived in Schenectady, New York!

    I could remember my zip code from Tennessee, Missouri, and Nebraska, but I couldn’t remember Seattle. I had to look it up. 98116.

    My first zip code in Baltimore was almost as cool as Schenectady. It was 21234.

    I’m having trouble looking up the zippy zip code for Schenectady…what is it? I’d like to live there because what a great name for a city…and they mention it in ‘Frosty the Snowman’.

    Brad, we’ve lived in the same zipcodes. I grew up in 21234 & then moved to 21214.

    I still remember my home phone number from when I was a kid. My parents only ever lived in one house & had the same phone number the entire time. Sometimes I want to call it, but chicken out. 410-823-8273 (my phone number from birth to age 21)

      You should google it!

      When Sam and I were in kindergarten they asked us our phone numbers and we didn’t know what our own numbers were, but we each knew the other’s number. You can reach Aunt Lolly at (314) XXX-3514. Well, you can’t really, because (1) there are “x”‘s in place of some of the numbers and (2) they changed the area code a while ago and I can never remember the new one.

    Lauren, was our phone number 874-4956?


    • Lauren Said on:

      Yes, it was! And the church was 874-3052. Do you remember when you didn’t have to dial the 8 or the 7?


      • Karla Said on:

        We moved from Concordia Mo in 1988/89. You still only had to dial the last 4 digits to call someone when we left. Our phone number was 7040.
