So, only cause their information/FAQ is confusing AF, or, I can't read (and it's probably the latter)...will photos of my vaccination card suffice for entry into NYCC? I know NYers need to use one of the two apps, but what of us non-NY folk? Would love to hear what folks know...thanks!

It just says “permitted to display proof on your smartphone” but doesn’t really say what that means, so I would err on the side of bringing the card.

It's so wishy washy. I've so far gotten away with just a photo of the vaccination card, but I live on the black sheep borough of NY which thinks the other person should have won the election; so YMMV.

For the first day at least i plan on having the physical card, after that I will play it by ear. i mean if you leave mid-day are you going to have to show it again.

For what it's worth, I'm a non-New Yorker who just went to NYC last week, and I used the NYC Covid Safe app everywhere I went. It's just a photo storage app but there is a specific spot for a photo of your vax card and a photo of your ID (and also a spot for a negative COVID test). I didn't want to deal with grabbing my card and ID every time (was terrified of losing my ID because of plane travel), and no one ever asked me for my physical items.

They added a Battlestar Galactica Retrospective at 3:30pm on Friday with Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell (apologies if this was listed all along, I just noticed it).

They added it a couple days ago without saying anything.

...I don't really know how to link to an app? But it's in the google play store if you search for "NYC COVID Safe" (from "City of New York"). Presumably it's in the apple store as well.

NYCC just tweeted about entering and vaccination throughout the weekend.

Basic points
They teamed up with clear pass to make it easier ahead of time
There is a verification site you go to to get a wristband before going to the Javits
Once you verify you get a wristband which is valid for the weekend (nothing can go wrong here)
