IDNYC's office is open by appointment only in Central Library's new Civic Commons. Regardless of your legal status, if you’re 10 and older and live in New York City, make an appointment to visit an IDNYC enrollment center at the Central Library.

IDNYC isn’t just a government-issued identification card -  It’s an opportunity to take advantage of all that The Big Apple can offer!  Gain free and discounted admission to some of NYC’s leading museums, movie theaters and public events, and great savings on local and neighbourhood services and health and wellness centers.

Here’s some other things you can do with your idNYC card:
  • Use as ID to enter public buildings, such as schools and city service agencies
  • Open a bank account
  • Use as a library card at Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, and Queens Public Library. For more information, please speak to a staff member at your local branch.
