Williamsburg Is Over
Summer’s almost here, so I decided to take a walk in Williamsburg, and it just reassured me that… thinks are really over for this neighborhood. I moved to Greenpoint (a sister neighbor...

Where is love?
Love has been on my mind recently (and probably has been unconsciously for a while now) and I started thinking about where to find it. I know it’s a pretty odd thing (you can&rsqu...

It’s Your Man Or...Your Girlfriend?
I recently noticed a very scary pattern, and I’m wondering what is causing it. I’ve noticed that women are a bit lost and confused as to what kind of partner they want to have by thei...

Should I Dump Him?
I was just sitting in the sauna at my gym last week, and I couldn’t help but overheard the conversation of two women around my age (even though I was trying very hard to focus on the guys in spe...

We all pretend it’s normal…
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...

What If I Told You That You Can Have a Different Life?
I know I will sound very naïve now, but I had a recent revelation I would like to share with you. I started thinking about the choices we make and why we actually make them. Those who have rea...

Poor Rich Kids
I have mentioned money in NYC on Just Like NY a few times already. There is a lot of money here, and people spend lots of it on a variety of weird and stupid things sometimes....

Do You Want To Be Famous?
Because I’ve been living here for almost five years now, I tend to forget what kind of place NYC is. It’s where fantasy keeps meeting reality. The longer you live here, the more “...

Double Standard – Why Are Women Treated Differently?
I had a situation that I wrote about on Facebook, but I want to write more about it, because there is more to it.  So there was a guy, a customer of mine who I had met maybe three times, who&n...

Why Having a Boyfriend Will Not Make You Happy?

Men and Sex
What is it that men want when it comes to sex…? The thing is: they want to have everything. Including a virgin. That’s the funniest part. I didn’t have a lot of sex in my life (c...

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

Why Is America Different – Part II


The most popular eating out place Always Carry Your ID According to Polish law, you need to carry your ID at all times – however, not many people actually do. Here law is the same and everyone follows it. It’s very rarely that someone leaves their place with no ID. You better have it with you at all times. You should especially remember about it if you’re planning to have a n

SOMETHIN’ Jazz Club


Did you ever dream of a private jazz concert at your own place…? That’s what it felt like in a club me and my friends went to recently. As soon as we reached the address we had, we discovered that the place looked just like an apartment building. In order to get to the club we needed to take the elevator (clubs on higher floors are very common here). The third floor was marked insi

Why Is America Different – Part I


Walgreens, Brooklyn October 2013 I often write of how different America is from Europe in many respects; it’s time to explain those differences. I’m sure I won’t be able to fit everything into this one post, so I will definitely come back to the subject. For now, just a handful of notes – maybe you wiil add some of your own in the comments section. City Made of Blocks

Why Do We Fall in Love with NY?


Houston street, Manhattan, 12th October 2013 There’s something in this city that makes people fall in love with it. Those who only planned to stay here for a while suddenly say: “I think I could live here”. I know many cases like that (I’m one of them myself). People want to live here, even though: (1) one lives here in constant hurry, (2) one works very hard,

Life Made to Measure


Lafayette street, Manhattan, 12th October 2013 As I was signing up for a gym last night and paid a 10 bucks admission fee (each following month will also be $10), I once again reflected on the cost of living in New York. When I moved here, I kept hearing: “You’ll see how expensive NYC is”. But I happen to believe it’s all a matter of perspective you’re choosing. L

Always Make Extra Time


October 2013 I already wrote here at Just Like NY about the most irritating feature of this city, which is its huge distances. That’s why I like the subway so much – if you live near a station, you’re „saved” (currently I live near three different lines, whis is as close to paradise as it gets!). Thanks to the subway, you can get anywhere. Not always, though. Which
