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?
When I was a teenage girl (that is one week ago… just kidding), my biggest dream was to have a boyfriend. Especially since a weekly column called “Love Story” from “Bravo&r...

What Happens Once You Stop Caring If People Like You?
What happens once you stop caring if people like you…? It’s simple – your life starts changing. Yes, it’s that huge. One day I realized that it happened to me – that ...

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...

The Most Annoying American Family
I must say, I’m so fed up with these fake images and fake lives that are all over social media now. And there is one family that makes me especially angry. You’ve p...

Step 53 - Do You Have A Choice?
I believe I have already written about what I am about to say in this post, but I’ll be coming back to the subject, because it’s really important. I notice more and more often that we ge...

Step 52 - Don’t Assume (Or In Another Words, Don’t Judge)
We’re all guilty of it. We judge. And even if you say or think that you don’t, I have bad news for you – yes, you do. We all classify people based on our knowledge of the...

Stereotypes. Have Enough Class To Not Say Anything
I wrote about stereotypes already, but the longer I live here, the more I see that not much is changing in this matter. Living in NY will help you learn more about other cultures, but it doesn&rsq...

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

The High Line – The Park Over New Yorkers’ Heads


January 2013 Americans were clearly jealous of the French and the Promenade Plantée in Paris, and so they created a similar park over New Yorkers’ heads. The High Line is a suspended promenade, one mile long, built on a former train track of the West Side Line in Manhattan. It was built in 2009 and is located above the streets of Manhattan (currently it stretches from below 14th to

No Work Shames You! Yeah, right…


Manhattan, September 2013 This is something I wanted to write about for a while now. In fact, I planned it ever since I first came to NYC in 2007. This post won’t tell you how to look for a job and find it, but it will tell you what does it mean to work in NY – and abroad in general. It may well be that many readers will protest and deny what I say below. But it’s time to face

Atlantic Antic – The Biggest Street Festival in NY


On Sunday, 29 September me and a couple of friends went to Atlantic Antic, a street festival taking place in Brooklyn, which attracts thousands of people every year. It’s the biggest festival of its kind in New York. Before the event I read that „on this day, Atlantic Avenue turns into a true ocean of goodies, dominated by celebration of the tradition of food, art, music, shopping an

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
