[Oops, sorry, wrong ID]
A temporary IDNYC enrollment site opens today at the Henry Street Settlement/Jobs Plus Site at 24 Avenue D near East Third Street ... and will remain open through Jan. 15.
Per Councilmember Rosie Mendez's website:
The IDNYC program launched in 2015 providing New York City residents with the opportunity to get a free identification card. IDNYC provides access to City services and cultural institutions, numerous discounts, and gives the peace of mind that comes from having recognized identification.
You will be able to use your IDNYC card at any public library in New York... as well as discounts on movie tickets, Broadway shows, sporting events, theme parks, and NYC landmarks and attractions. (Find the list of discounts here.)
By the way, the IDs won't get you into a bar. Also, several big banks, including Bank of America, Citibank, JPMorgan Chase and Capital One, refuse to accept the card as a primary form of identification, per The New York Times in an editorial the other day.
The site is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every weekday except Tuesday, when the hours are from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. You can make an appointment by visiting www.nyc.gov/idnyc or calling 311.
...and the pop-up launch is this afternoon at 1...
