pr447-14Mayor Bill De Blasio announced that the City’s Municipal ID, which will launch later this month, will give New Yorkers access to one-year free membership packages at 33 of the City’s leading cultural institutions, including world class museums, performing arts centers, concert halls, botanical gardens, and zoos in all five boroughs. Conspiracy theorists may look at this as another way for the city to keep tabs on its residents but parents should look at it as a necessary tool in their arsenal of things to keep busy! You can’t apply for the ID card online but you can check when the ID enrollment centers are open here.
