Seniors in Flushing now have a new, more convenient place to sign up for the city's municipal ID.
Assembly Member Nily Rozic and State Senator Toby Ann Stavisky opened up an IDNYC Pop-Up location at the SelfHelp Innovative Center on Kissena Boulevard Thursday.
The IDNYC program provides eligible city residents with a photo identification card, recognized by banks, libraries and other institutions.
Cardholders also get free access to cultural institutions, like museums.
“I think IDNYC is really the key to the city for many seniors and if we can bring city services directly to them, enrollment sites directly to them, it really is a huge benefit,” Rozic said.
“I asked the people in this room how many people had driver’s licenses, and two or three hands went up. That's why we need IDNYC here in Queens,” added Stavisky.
The pop-up center will be open through March 2nd.
