IDNYC is the free government-issued photo identification, meant to benefit every NYC resident, providing services and access to many City and business programs
The Fort Greene Health Center, located at 295 Flatbush Ave Ext, has been selected to be an “IDNYC Pop-UP” enrollment site. The Pop-Up enrollment for obtaining the ID will take place from August 28 to September 1.
IDNYC is the free government-issued photo identification card for all New York City residents, meant to benefit every city resident, including the most vulnerable communities – the homeless, youth, the elderly, undocumented immigrants, the formerly incarcerated and others who may have difficulty obtaining other government-issued ID.
IDNYC cardholders can access services and programs offered by the City as well as by businesses. It also helps New Yorkers gain access to all City buildings that provide services to the public and is accepted as a form of identification for accessing numerous City programs and services.
Additionally, IDNYC offers a wide range of benefits to cardholders, including a free one-year membership at as many as 40 of the City’s leading museums, NYC attractions, sports events, concert halls and botanical gardens, as well as at some of your favorite Brooklyn institutions such as BAM, BRIC and Prospect Park Zoo. Some of the benefits that are included:
- Discounted memberships to YMCA locations and NYC Parks Department recreation centers.
- IDNYC card awards savings on classes at 1,000+ schools in NYC.
- A 50% discount on Bike New York annual memberships, and a 15% discount on CitiBike annual memberships.
- A 5% discount at Food Bazaar grocery stores.
IDNYC is also a prescription drug discount card, a library card, and is accepted as proof of identity and residency by NYC agencies, including the New York Police Department. See the full list of IDNYC benefits here.
