IDNYC gives FREE membership to 33 major cultural institutions in NYC.

 

idnyc

One of the greatest projects of the city of New York was just launched this month and it is an incredible opportunity for any parent to explore the city’s museums, zoos and arts centers for free with their kids. It is called IDNYC.

Why is it so great?
For a large segment of the population, IDNYC is an opportunity to get a legal identification document that can be used to open bank accounts, access city services, receive prescription and membership discounts to health centers, etc. The id can be obtained by anyone, 14 or older, residing in NYC, be it a Wall street executive,  homeless person, an undocumented immigrant or your teenage son.

But how does it benefit those who already have some form of id?
One of the greatest incentives to getting the id is that by applying for the FREE id, you will also receive membership to 33 cultural institutions in the city for a whole year ABSOLUTELY FREE! It is an amazing gift to residents, especially those with children who will be able to take advantage of museums, zoos, even get discounted tickets for Lincoln Center and Brooklyn Academy of Music, absolutely free.
