When I know you’re not a New Yorker?

“I’m Not…”…? I say It’s Bullshit

Body – dangerous field

How to Choose a Partner?

How About My Ego?

Polish Pork Chop in New York


When someone asks me: „Don’t you miss Polish food?”, I say I don’t. Is it because I don’t like Polish cuisine…? No. I do enjoy it. I may prefer Greek or Italian, but I always enjoy a good „schabowy” [pork chop]. The reason I don’t miss it is because it’s fully available to me over here. Of course, it may  not always be „home

Greenpoint - Manhattan Avenue

Greenpoint vs. Williamsburg


I’m always irritated by Polish people who –without ever being in New York and thus without knowing Greenpoint first-hand – tell me their opininon of the palce or simply laugh at it. The truth about Greenpoint, as is usually the case, is somewhere in between. Especially recently. Greenpoint has been forever associated with Polish people. Everyone in NYC knows that’s where

Why Is America Different. Part III


Maybe this picture is not a perfect illustration, but at least it shows the carts :) Shopping with Your Own Cart If you happen to see a person in the street pushing a shopping cart, it doesn’t necessarily mean there’s something wrong with them. Americans often take their own carts to shop, instead of lifting to heavy bags with them. My friend who has been living here for a number o

Tipping


There are many ways to get a tip... I wrote recently that every price over here is increased by the sales tax, which often results in prices being higher than listed. Same goes for services. What I mean this time is tipping, which Polish people actually call „beer money”. Let me just say that over here, tips are welcome everywhere and in most places are treated as standard practice.

First Aid Kit


"My" chinese place, Brooklyn, October 2013 I don’t know why that is (laziness or simply convenience, if there’s even a difference between the two), but what I really like over here is the fact that every other block has the same set of establishments, which – combined – I like to call my „first aid kit”. In any given district, no matter how fat or t

So, Where Do You Live?


Manhattan, July2013 Guess what the most popular conversation topic is in New York (no matter if you talk to a friend or a stranger). Is it the weather…? Sure. Is it how one feels today…? That, too. Is it the place you live in…? BINGO! Where do you live? What subway station is that? How long is your commute? These questions are our daily bread. No one is surprised by hearing

An Incredible Theatrical Journey


I don’t have vast knowledge of theater, but I love seeing plays (even though I don’t do it often). Still, I knew that I absolutely needed to see a play I heard about for a long time now. It’s called „Sleep No More” and it’s a spectacle – or rather an interactive „experience” – devised by a British group Punchdrunk. Reviews told me that
