What You Really Need Is A Connection…With Yourself
I lead a life that I didn’t expect to be leading right now. (No, I’m not a princess living in a castle.) Six months ago, I decided not to have internet in my apartment. I have it on my pho...

Getting You Off The Hook.

We all pretend that life in NY is normal. Just today I had the day off, which isn’t usually for a Thursday, and I decided to go to the gym before noon. I got on a train at 10am and...

Stereotypes


  I often hear: „Oh, these are just stereotypes; you can’t pigeonhole people”. I don’t necessarily agree. Of course there are as many approaches to life as there are people themselves – and I certainly don’t enjoy it when I’m being judged stereotypically (even though Polish women in NYC are usually seen as diligent workers, there’s still a stro

Spring At Central Park


Spring finally hit NY! (we're loosing hope). Because it's warmer and the trees are blossoming I decided it was a perfect time for Central Park. When I was there for the first time 10 years ago, I was astonished how huge this place was. And I still can't understand how it's possible that something as amazing as this park could be in the middle of Manhattan. The pictures I took captured

Reaching a New Level


As I said in the “About Me” box on this website, I like creative people, which is one of the reasons I moved to NY. It’s true that it’s a city full of freaks – of whom I already wrote at Just Like NY – but also a city filled with people who came here with the same purpose I have: to find themselves and to constantly grow. Is it only in NY that you can spread

Motown on Broadway


   I’m curious how do you imagine a Broadway show to look like? In my imagination, these two words always conjured up an image of a huge auditorium and a big stage, filled with miracles of Cirque du Soleil variety. Imagine my surprise when a couple of years ago I went to see “The Producers” and I entered an auditorium looking very much like the theaters I knew, with a

To Be Gay in NY


I really don’t know how it’s possible that I still haven’t written of gay men in NY. Those who know me even a little realize that I’m a big supporter of gay rights and I protect my gay friends like a mother hen taking care of her chicks (at times I even protect them from themselves). I have many gay friends and I will always shake my head at anyone saying that “thos

The Flavors of NY - Lower East Side I


I already wrote here at Just Like NY about Lower East Side being my favorite part of town lately. I spend more and more time there and I keep discovering its nooks and crannies. And naturally, I get to know more and more interesting food places I’m eager to revisit. Your ideal LES Flavors Day should start at the Triple Shot World Atlas Café at 37-39 Clinton Street, preferably wit

Beacon’s Closet


One of innumerable reasons people choose to come to NYC is shopping. OK, shopping is the No. 2 reason to come here, right after taking a gorgeous selfie in the middle of Times Square. No sooner than you say “New York”, people think of Macy’s, of all the Broadway stores below 14th St., as well as of TJ Maxx and Marshall on 6th Ave. Those in the know will probably head

Lower East Side


Rivington street I love Lower East Side (LES), stretching from Houston Street all the way to Chinatown. It is rarely that the place figures on the “to do lists” of NYC tourists, even though it should. It’s raggedy and not very clean, but for me it really has the “old New York” spirit. This district is changing, too, and you cannot tell how it will look in a couple
