Opportunity for IDNYC Card on Roosevelt Island

New York, N.Y. New York City residents are eligible to sign up for IDNYC, which is a government-issued identification card. You can apply for the IDNYC for free, and once you apply, you can get benefits with the card. One important thing for an applicant is that the immigration status does not matter as long as they are older than 14. The reason why the government encourages NYC residents to get an IDNYC is that it helps enhance public safety by serving as a recognized ID that can be used when interacting with the NYPD.

There is a “pop-up” enrollment site to get an IDNYC at the Roosevelt Island Senior Center, 546 Main ST, New York, NY 10044 from October 11 to October 17, 2016 (Tuesday to Friday) 9am to 5pm and Monday 9am to 12pm. Appointments are preferred, as walk-ins are not guaranteed. You can make an appointment on their website, which is listed below. This is supported by Councilmember Ben Kallos, Senator José M. Serrano, Rep. Carolyn Maloney, Assemblymember Rebecca Seawright, and Manhattan Borough Pres. Gale A. Brewer.
