I understand the concept of showing ID. But I've yet to walk through a security line where the guard thought it was OK to leave the ID in the wallet. Usually they make you take it out to see it closer...you know just in case you've decided to photoshop yourself and change your name from Osama to Johnny.
I go to 4-6 buildings per day in manahattan, and few if any, require me to pull the id out, which i usually refuse. I don't want people handling my driver's license because it will get it dirty, or they will try to scan it into their machine, whose legality is questionable. All one needs to do is show their ID, nothing more is required. If that building wants to scan the info in, tough. If they won't let me in, screw them. I will complain to the tenant, who can then tell the mgmt company.
