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

Magical Spots, Part I


There are places in NY which I would love to share with everyone I know. Every single time I visit them, I am reminded of why I love living here so much. One place like that is Sutton Place (58th St. & York Avenue), with the memorable bench featured in Woody Allen’s “Manhattan” and a great view of Queensboro Bridge. This little square is perfect for a short repose and for co

Never, never, never give up.


I always believed that some people appear in our lives for a reason. They tend to do so especially when we really need a sign that what we do truly has a meaning. Recently, when I had one of those days and I kept asking myself the lofty question of “Is it really worth it?”, I met a certain man from California. The gentleman, well in his sixties, started to ask me where I was from; he

Chinatown


It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, spring was just around the corner, so I decided to take a walk. My destination was Chinatown. Chinatown is in Manhattan and is considered as the largest and the oldest enclave of Chinese people outside of Asia. Its unofficial street borders are: Broom street to the north, Chambers street to the south, East Broadway to the east and Broadway to the west.

World Trade Center Today


As it turns out, World Trade Center – the place where the two famous tower used to stand – is often one of the first things NYC tourists want to see. New Yorkers, on the other hand, don’t mention it too often – most of them probably don’t even remember when was it that they wandered into that area. Still, for the tourists it seems to be the absolute No. 1 priority. I

Eating Out Movie Style


It goes without saying that this city is full of movie-related places, but two are especially worthy of a visit. One can even say that you haven’t really seen NY until you visited these two spots (I’m kidding – I didn’t get there myself before my fifth or seventh trip to the Big Apple). The first place is of course Katz’s Delicatessen, where Meg Ryan lived through t

In the Rythm of New York


One of the reasons I first came to NY was music. I knew that if I happen to want to see a particular artist, New York City is bound to be one of the stops on his or her tour. What I didn’t know then was that NY will offer me much more – and for free. There’s not a day here (and maybe not even an hour) without a few (or rather few dozen) places playing live music of the highest q

Sex Appeal Is His Forte


I didn’t plan to go there. I wanted to go home like a good girl and finally get some sleep. But it so happened that I was walking by the place and suddenly two drag queens passed me on the street. They went inside and so – naturally! – I followed. I saw a poster announcing nightly shows with a new drag queen every evening, so I knew I was stuck there for good. I got myself a dr
