Your CPR number is a 9 digit number, right? But it is always divided into three separate sections.

The number is divided into a three-digit, a two-digit and a four-digit number. This combination only exists for one person, you!

The first three-digit part of your CPR number (if you were born in 1972 or earlier) is actually a geographical identifier. Most people who had their social security numbers issued in e.g. New York or Connecticut, their SSN will start with the number 0. For a person born on the west coast, it starts with a 5. This first part is called the area code.

What does the second set of numbers in your CPR number represent? The double-digit number?

The second part (the two-digit number) is the group number. These are not issued consecutively and have to do with the area of ​​the state in which your number was issued.

The last part, the 4-digit part, is you. While there is a chance that someone else will also share the same last 4 digits of Social Security number, each number is used only once and exclusively for you.

New York State can be considered the “birthplace of the carousels” because of the Herschell Carousel Museum and Factory in North Tonawanda, NY, where they made hundreds of them over the course of a century.

We are fortunate to have 46 historic, functioning carousels in the Empire State. Here is a list of 13 of the best!
