NYC ID card sign up coming to our area!
Almost a year ago New York City made history by launching IDNYC, our city’s new municipal ID card program. Since then, over half a million New Yorkers have signed up, and IDNYC is now the largest municipal ID program in the country.
If you haven’t had time to get your card yet – I’ve got some great news for you! IDNYC is coming to us.
I’m pleased to announce that the IDNYC team will be coming to the John Jay High School Campus to run an enrollment “pop-up center” from November 16th to December 3rd. This is the first enrollment event held at an NYC public school. Click here to reserve your spot!
Library (2nd Floor)
You must make an appointment online to reserve a spot so click here, and choose "Brooklyn – John Jay High School" to reserve your time.
Besides serving as a valid photo ID for all NYC agencies, IDNYCs can be used to open a checking account at Amalgamated Bank and a number of credit unions. An IDNYC card is also a great way of showing off your civic pride!
There’s another very good reason to get your card now. IDNYC offers discounts to museum memberships and cultural institutions across the city for the first year only. The time window on the one year memberships is closing fast (in many cases, IDNYC holders need to activate a membership prior to January 1, 2016), so if you don’t have your card already, now is definitely the time to make sure you get your new ID.
Getting an ID is easy. You just need to make an appointment, and bring in proper documentation to prove you live in NYC and that you are who you say you are. For more on how to enroll, visit the IDNYC website.
I’m also pleased to share the news that in addition to offering enrollment after school, students in the building will be able to sign up for their IDs during the school day. The IDNYC John Jay pop up is the first ID event targeted specifically for high school age students -- a population that in many cases, has no form of picture ID at all. Thanks to the NYC Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs and the IDNYC team for reaching our students where they are. I also greatly appreciate the principals of the schools in the John Jay building for working with these agencies and my office to welcome the program into the building. I’m thrilled to partner together in this event.
Thanks for joining so many in becoming a card carrying New Yorker!
