Mayor de Blasio is launching the IDNYC Municipal ID later this year and it will be free to all NYC residents. The ID card gives many benefits to people who already have a State ID (or any ID really) and includes the somewhat highly coveted proof that you do indeed live in NYC (not in an area near NYC and you just happen to come to NYC a lot).

Additionally, the program is supposed to give the homeless and even undocumented immigrants a sure-fire way to gain ID status without going through the DMV.
