Bayside residents will have the opportunity to sign up for a free city identification card without having to leave the neighborhood later this month.
The Korean Community Services Community Center at 203rd Street and 32nd Avenue will serve as an IDNYC pop-up enrollment site from Oct. 17 to Oct. 30. The site will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m.
Launched in 2015, IDNYC is a free, government-issued photo identification card. A number of benefits are available to IDNYC cardholders, including the opportunity to sign up for free one-year memberships at some of the city’s museums, zoos, concert halls, and botanical gardens, as well as discounts at some supermarkets and fitness centers.
The card can also be used at any public library across the five boroughs and as a valid photo ID to open up accounts at certain banks and credit unions.
All New Yorkers who are 14 years old and over and reside in one of the five boroughs are eligible for the I.D., regardless of immigration status.
Members of the IDNYC team will be on-site at the center to enroll applicants. Those interested in applying are encouraged to reserve an appointment online or by calling 311. Walk-ins are not guaranteed.
