Step 44 - How Do You See Yourself?
photo by http://www.wdkproductions.com/ I wonder what kind of picture of yourself do you have in your own mind? I’m not asking about the one you present to the world, but about the real ...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood s...

Step 43: Have the Courage to Stand Alone
Photo by wdkproductions.com I heard this sentence: “Have the courage to stand alone”, spoken by Brene Brown in a conversation with Marie Forleo a few weeks ago, and it keeps ringing in ...

Walk with Me, Part 3 – Soho
  Soho is one of my favorite places in NY. And it’s not because of the fancy stores (I don’t have the desire to buy a Chanel bag, I want someone to give me that bag for free.) It's...

Step 42 – How do we not go crazy?
It’s very easy to go crazy in NY. It’s way too easy. That’s why at some point, you have to slow down and ask yourself how your mind is doing. There are a few different ways I ...

Step 41 – Close the Open Tabs
I recently noticed that everyone, including myself, says, “OMG, this month passed by so fast! Where did the time go?” And I feel that every year we say it more often. Have you noticed th...

The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

SOMETHIN’ Jazz Club


Did you ever dream of a private jazz concert at your own place…? That’s what it felt like in a club me and my friends went to recently. As soon as we reached the address we had, we discovered that the place looked just like an apartment building. In order to get to the club we needed to take the elevator (clubs on higher floors are very common here). The third floor was marked insi

Why Is America Different – Part I


Walgreens, Brooklyn October 2013 I often write of how different America is from Europe in many respects; it’s time to explain those differences. I’m sure I won’t be able to fit everything into this one post, so I will definitely come back to the subject. For now, just a handful of notes – maybe you wiil add some of your own in the comments section. City Made of Blocks

Why Do We Fall in Love with NY?


Houston street, Manhattan, 12th October 2013 There’s something in this city that makes people fall in love with it. Those who only planned to stay here for a while suddenly say: “I think I could live here”. I know many cases like that (I’m one of them myself). People want to live here, even though: (1) one lives here in constant hurry, (2) one works very hard,

Life Made to Measure


Lafayette street, Manhattan, 12th October 2013 As I was signing up for a gym last night and paid a 10 bucks admission fee (each following month will also be $10), I once again reflected on the cost of living in New York. When I moved here, I kept hearing: “You’ll see how expensive NYC is”. But I happen to believe it’s all a matter of perspective you’re choosing. L

Always Make Extra Time


October 2013 I already wrote here at Just Like NY about the most irritating feature of this city, which is its huge distances. That’s why I like the subway so much – if you live near a station, you’re „saved” (currently I live near three different lines, whis is as close to paradise as it gets!). Thanks to the subway, you can get anywhere. Not always, though. Which

The High Line – The Park Over New Yorkers’ Heads


January 2013 Americans were clearly jealous of the French and the Promenade Plantée in Paris, and so they created a similar park over New Yorkers’ heads. The High Line is a suspended promenade, one mile long, built on a former train track of the West Side Line in Manhattan. It was built in 2009 and is located above the streets of Manhattan (currently it stretches from below 14th to

No Work Shames You! Yeah, right…


Manhattan, September 2013 This is something I wanted to write about for a while now. In fact, I planned it ever since I first came to NYC in 2007. This post won’t tell you how to look for a job and find it, but it will tell you what does it mean to work in NY – and abroad in general. It may well be that many readers will protest and deny what I say below. But it’s time to face

Atlantic Antic – The Biggest Street Festival in NY


On Sunday, 29 September me and a couple of friends went to Atlantic Antic, a street festival taking place in Brooklyn, which attracts thousands of people every year. It’s the biggest festival of its kind in New York. Before the event I read that „on this day, Atlantic Avenue turns into a true ocean of goodies, dominated by celebration of the tradition of food, art, music, shopping an
