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...

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

Patricia Field’s House of Sin


 Patricia Field, 306 Bowery, Manhattan Even though Manhattan keeps providing me with thrills, I don’t recall when was the last time that a mere visit to a store pleased me so much as the one I made a couple of days ago. I went inside, because my attention was caught by some very colorful and slightly campy items displayed outside. That, together with a mannequin (a woman-umbrella) next

„I Envy You New York” – Are you sure…?


Lower East side, Manhattan, September 2013 „I envy you New York”. I don’t know how many times have I heard this sentence. I firmly believe that the people saying it have good intentions, but I’m becoming more and more irritated by it. How come? First of all: if you happen to be single, untied by family or a partner, you don’t have a job that gives you 300% satisf

Cockroaches!!!


I know there are no cochroaches in the picture, but I just don't feel like posting any pictures with them. You can see how destroyed some buildings actually are - cochroaches are happy about that. How do you picture a typical Manhattan flat? Spacious, clean, with a gorgous view of the skyline in each window, right…? It may happen – if you are rich. Reality is more brutal, though.Wh

The Green Card Dreams


It happens to me more and more often that, upon hearing questions like: „Why can’t you stay over there as long as you’d like?”, or: „Why don’t you find a job there?”, I need to take a deep breath and count to ten. It’s time to finally explain it. As a Pole, in order to get to the United States, you need a visa. Getting a tourist visa valid for 10
