Did You Know...
The title of the Glen Miller tune "Pennsylvania 6-5000" was the phone
number of the Hotel Pennsylvania on 7th Avenue in New York City. At the time,
if you wished to call the Hotel Pennsylvania, you would ask the operator
to connect you to "Pennsylvania 6-5000." However, if you had a phone that
you could dial a number on, you would dial "736-5000" since 73 was the equivalent
of the exchange name "PEnnsylvania."
