“You should get an IDNYC card, it’s very useful!” New York City Councilman Peter Koo smiled and said to an Asian man in front of Flushing Library, Queens.
You can apply for IDNYC: if you are a resident of New York City; have proof of identification; are at least 14 years old; regardless of immigration status. According to the information on the flyers that councilman Koo was handing out.
With the card, NYC residents can receive: one-year free membership at more than 30 cultural institutions; discounts at movie theaters; discounts at health and wellness centers; access to BigAppleRx, the City’s official prescription discount card program, and more!
