The IDNYC card is an accessible and secure document that enables residents to access City services and grant admission to City buildings, such as schools. In addition, the card can be presented as proof of identification for interacting with the police.
You are also able to use your IDNYC card at any public library in New York. The card can be integrated with your account at the New York, Brooklyn, and Queens public libraries. This is the first time a single card will be accepted across all three systems.
A number of additional benefits are available to IDNYC cardholders, including the opportunity to sign up for free one-year memberships at 33 of the City's leading museums, zoos, concert halls, and botanical gardens. The City will continue to expand and improve upon the IDNYC program and work with businesses and community partners to make new benefits available to cardholders as the program grows.
