NY Through My Eyes - West Village, October 2018
I started my You Tube series "NY Through My Eyes". My goal is to explore the most interesting NY neighborhoods. I took off with the West Village. More (and better) to come. I'll be talking a...

Color Factory - Wake Up Your Inner Child
The problem with NY is that we have too much of everything. There are so many events every day that sometimes - or most of the time - you just choose…to stay at home. And that’s exactly...

Your Opinion of Me Is None of My Business
Yeah, I know. The second you hear the sentence I chose for the title of this post, it sounds very cocky to you. It sounds like my self-esteem is sky-rocketing and my ego is bursting at the seams. Bu...

“The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” - Regret Number Five
For some reason, I’ve kept seeing again the list of “The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying” poping up recently all the time. It’s a list created by Bronnie Ware, based on her best- ...

Step 61 - Forget About “Finding Your Passion”
I’ve already written in Just Like NY about “looking for a passion,” but I have a few new thoughts on the subject.  First of all, forget about this trend of “live yo...

Just Let Us Be the Woman We Want To Be
I was recently riding the subway and I looked around as I always do (unless I’m around my period and don’t want to look at anyone). I looked at women this time (it rarely happens, but th...

Breathwork with XPT

Make Your Own Choice
I was recently called out on holding a supposedly strongly stance against marriage. Since it happened twice in one month, I feel like something I said was actually lost in translation.  I neve...

What’s the deal with meditation?
I don’t know what it’s like everywhere else, but here in the US, meditation has become very popular, to the point where companies hire teachers to give...

Give What You Get
A week ago, I got a text message from a guy I went on a date with… a year before. I didn’t expect to hear from him again (which is why I deleted his number), so I was pretty surprised.&...

A Walk in Harlem


Despite my great love of New York City, I still don’t know much about one of its most legendary districts: Harlem. My first visit over there took place in 2003, when I first came to New York City. The trip took half an hour and I was very scared. Not that anything bad happened: I was scared simply because I was in Harlem. I knew it only from the movies I saw, and so I was sure someone was ab

7th Street, Manhattan


Among other things, the magic of Manhattan lies in the fact that its landscape changes every couple of blocks. You cross a street expecting to see more of the same buildings and nail salons, and suddenly you’re surrounded by Indian restaurants or you get an impression that 90% of men are gay (which was probably the case to start with). That’s why I love to walk down Manhattan – t

SHOWTIME! SHOWTIME!


  December 2013 There are certain words spoken on the subway that can radically change my mood in a matter of seconds. Depending on the day, they can either make me cheer or (which is the case far more often) they make me want to grab a hammer, bang a hole in the train window and walk the tunnel to the next station. Let me say outright: I adore the guys saying those words and I appreciate t

Brunch in NYC


Brunch is an incredibly popular meal in NYC. New Yorkers get up late on weekends, put on some comfy clothes and prepare to go out with friends. Brunch is usually their very first meal, after just having balled through Friday or Saturday night. I love brunches in NYC, even though they irritate the hell out of me at times. I love them not because there’s anything extraordinary happening as y

Humans of New York by Brandon Stanton


Which guidebook will you choose in order to learn as much as possible about New York Ciity…? (Apart from my own website, of course…). If you ask me, an absolute must is the recently published book “Humans of New York” , featuring photographs by Brandon Stanton. I got this book as a Christmas gift from my friend Mariusz and during the first day of Christmas I couldn&rsq

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
