Mayor Bill de Blasio announces 5 new IDNYC sites are back online
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday the return of the IDNYC offices with even more locations set to open.
The program provides free IDs to all New Yorkers, giving people perks in every borough, including discounts on prescription drugs, movie tickets, and access to bank accounts for the undocumented.
"1.4 million New Yorkers have an IDNYC and for so many of them it has unlocked incredible opportunities they would not have had without having an ID card," Mayor de Blasio said. "Simple, powerful things like being able to get a bank account or sign a lease or visit your child's school because folks have an ID."
The Bronx location is located in Melrose and appointments are required.
