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...

Chelsea Market


Chelsea Market is a multi-store building located in Manhattan, at 15th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues (75 9th Ave.). It was built in the Ninetieth Century, which makes it very old by New York standards. It first served as a bakery. Currently it’s one of the most fashionable places in New York and an absolute must-see. When I first visited the place with my friend Mariusz, I was disap

Patricia Field’s House of Sin


 Patricia Field, 306 Bowery, Manhattan Even though Manhattan keeps providing me with thrills, I don’t recall when was the last time that a mere visit to a store pleased me so much as the one I made a couple of days ago. I went inside, because my attention was caught by some very colorful and slightly campy items displayed outside. That, together with a mannequin (a woman-umbrella) next

„I Envy You New York” – Are you sure…?


Lower East side, Manhattan, September 2013 „I envy you New York”. I don’t know how many times have I heard this sentence. I firmly believe that the people saying it have good intentions, but I’m becoming more and more irritated by it. How come? First of all: if you happen to be single, untied by family or a partner, you don’t have a job that gives you 300% satisf

Cockroaches!!!


I know there are no cochroaches in the picture, but I just don't feel like posting any pictures with them. You can see how destroyed some buildings actually are - cochroaches are happy about that. How do you picture a typical Manhattan flat? Spacious, clean, with a gorgous view of the skyline in each window, right…? It may happen – if you are rich. Reality is more brutal, though.Wh

The Green Card Dreams


It happens to me more and more often that, upon hearing questions like: „Why can’t you stay over there as long as you’d like?”, or: „Why don’t you find a job there?”, I need to take a deep breath and count to ten. It’s time to finally explain it. As a Pole, in order to get to the United States, you need a visa. Getting a tourist visa valid for 10

MoMA PS1 Warm Up Party


MoMA PS1, 31 August, 2013, photo by Rajas Karnik At last I visited a place known to most of New Yorkers: MoMA PS1 (and decided to celebrate my birthday here!). It’s a quintessence of New York itself. It’s surrounded by concrete and steeped in art. It’s full of fashionable, smiling people, enjoying their drinks and dancing to the rhythm of new bands. Maybe it’s not exactl

Life On the Go


Union Squre, June 2013 One of the many differences between New York streets and those of any other city is that you can truly experience the so-called everyday life here. In Poland, as well as in many other European countries, there’s a clear division between what’s private and what’s public. Here it matters far less. The main borderline should be drawn rather between what&rsq

Station to Station, or Art by Train(ing)


6th September 2013 at Cine Magic Riverfron Studios, Willimsburg, Brooklyn. Since art has been my interest for a long time now (even if I don’t always understand it and I’m by no means an expert), I’m eager to attend any artistic event I can. As soon as I learned about the “Station to Station” project, I knew I wanted to experience it. It was described as a “h
