If you’re looking to get your hands on a New York City municipal ID card, here’s your change.
For two weeks, Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer’s office will serve as a pop-up site for IDNYC. From October 2 to October 13, New York City residents ages 14 and older, regardless of immigration status, can apply for the ID.
The site at 47-01 Queens Boulevard, Suite 205, will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“For Sunnysiders and residents of Western Queens, applying for an IDNYC card will be easier than ever with this two week pop-up is right here in my Sunnyside district office,” Van Bramer said. “I’m thrilled to partner with the administration to offer this convenient option for the people of my district to sign up for the IDNYC card, which provides many benefits to New Yorkers, especially those who may not have been able to obtain another form of identification.”
Benefits include discounts and free one-year memberships to more than 40 cultural institutions citywide. The ID can also be used as a library card or to open a bank or credit union account at several financial institutions.
A full list of benefit partners are on the IDNYC website at nyc.gov/IDNYC.
According to Bitta Mostofi, acting commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, more than 1.1 million New Yorkers already have IDNYC.
All applicants must have documentation that proves identity and residency in New York City.
