Singled Out


I, Union Square, August 2013 As I started reading Sara Eckel’s piece in New York Times – „The Hard-Won Lessons of the Solitary Years” I was sure I’m about to get yet another rant about how selfish and self-absorbed single people are. I was about to skip it, but I decided to read the whole thing anyway. I’m happy I did, since Eckel perfectly captured what I ha

Walk One Extra Block


Not so long ago I moved to the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg – specifically to its very end, known its supposedly „lesser part”. (I will write more about Willamsburg and its divisions in an upcoming post; for now you will have to take my word for it). I live in a high-rise building and as I take the elevator, I meet many Polish people, but also Black, Latino, and –

Subway Cocoons


6 AM, Lorimer Station, November 2013 There are days that require me to run multiple errands in the city, which usually translates into an entire day spent on the subway as I commute to various parts of the town. Every time that happens, I’m struck all over again by the fact that I live inside an incredible mix: a cultural melting pot that knows no boundaries. What I realize most clearly a

Christmas Time in NY


I've heard: "NY must be magical during the christmas time" so many times, that I decided to show you how I see NY at this time of a year.  I went for a very long walk with my camera and managed to capture all those "must see places". I started from the 5th Avenue at Central Park and the Plaza Hotel, then I went to the 6th Avenue and took pictures of all those most known sp

Pam Ann, or Flying Off the Handle


Pam Ann at XL club, December 2013 Do you know Pam Ann? I didn’t – not until a certain December evening. A friend of mine told me he bought me a ticket to her show and that we were going. I fell in love with her from the very first minute. What was so great about her show was that you couldn’t tell what would come next. But I’m getting ahead of myself.   Pam

House Balls According to Gaskin, or What Is „Vouging”


I chanced upon the article on Gaskin’s photography in one of the November issues of the „New York Times”. The subject of the pictures struck me as interesting enough to make me spend an entire evening browsing the internet. Gerard H. Gaskin is a photographer born in Trinidad; for over two decades now he has been portraying the undeground gay and transgender scenes. He deals wi

Balthus at Metropolitan Museum of Art


Definitely my favorite painting.  I was overjoyed to be able to finally make it to Metropolitan Museum of Art for the Balthus exhibition “Cats and Girls – Paintings and Provocations”, the title of which is pretty much self-explanatory.   Before I comment on the exhibition itself, I will briefly mention what was most memorable to me about the entire visit. At al

Musical Mondays


If you ever find yourself staying in New York City on a Monday, you really need to visit The Bitter End club. It’s a place located in West Village, in downtown Manhattan (West 4th St. subway station). Me and my friends - Magda and Joachim, ended up in the club on one of this November Mondays. It was completely by accident; we didn’t plan ahead. Our main objective for the evening was
