Until now, my favorite sentence was always: “Hope he’ll change after we get married.” (Yeah,  sure, into a pumpkin…) But there is a new contender that I find equally ...

NY Love Story A.D. 2019
I don’t like romantic comedies. And I can tell you why. Once, it used to be my favorite genre, but I grew up since then (a bit). Also — I moved to NY. Romantic comedies just don’t ...

When Was the Last Time Your Journal Embarrassed You?
When was the last time you said to yourself: “This is embarrassing”, and you actually meant yourself…? Well, it just happened to me. I sat down to write about something else and I...

Why It’s Important To Not Look Like Shit
Here is my question: Why do you think it’s a good idea to look like shit at home? Some people put on their worst clothes at home - clothes with holes, stretched out, worn out, old and ugly. (B...

You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs To… Find the Frog That Rises to Your Standards
I’ve had a few men in my life so far, and they always disappeared at some point (nowadays, I realize that they actually did me a favor). Once, I used to think it was the end of the world, but ...

You Have To Punch Back
There is a saying in NY: If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. And there is a reason for that. I always say that a relationship with this city is like a relationship with an abusive boy...

Why Does Time Have Value
I recently noticed that I’m able to guess how long a person have lived in NYC. It’s not that I know the exact number of years, but I can recognize if someone has been living here for jus...

Wait For the Understanding Nod
I recently chatted on Instagram with a guy (we haven’t met in real life, he just saw my photos on social media) and he said this thing, and I quote: “How come you’re still single? ...

Step 63 - It’s All About Priorities
I know a guy in NY who doesn’t like to spend money on a cup of coffee. He doesn’t understand why anyone would spend $6 on a cup of coffee when you can pay $15 for a whole bag. But at the...

“The Top Five Regrets of Dying” - Regret Number One
This is a continuation of my posts about Bronnie Ware’s “The Top Five Regrets of Dying,” this being the last one. I wrote about Regret Numbers Five, Four, Three and Two here. Regr...

Love is Born
I watched “A Star is born” recently and can’t stop thinking about this movie.  It’s a story that has been told in Hollywood many times already: that of a seasoned mus...

In the Rythm of New York


One of the reasons I first came to NY was music. I knew that if I happen to want to see a particular artist, New York City is bound to be one of the stops on his or her tour. What I didn’t know then was that NY will offer me much more – and for free. There’s not a day here (and maybe not even an hour) without a few (or rather few dozen) places playing live music of the highest q

Sex Appeal Is His Forte


I didn’t plan to go there. I wanted to go home like a good girl and finally get some sleep. But it so happened that I was walking by the place and suddenly two drag queens passed me on the street. They went inside and so – naturally! – I followed. I saw a poster announcing nightly shows with a new drag queen every evening, so I knew I was stuck there for good. I got myself a dr

Curiousity Shops and More


When you are leaving NY, usually you don’t want to do so empty-handed and feel inclined (or forced) to get some souvenirs for your family and friends. Instead of buying a rubber or „metal” Empire State Building figurine, I suggest visiting several places offering unusual gifts that will both surprise and delight you. Here are some of my favorite destinations. The first one is th

Jean Paul Gaultier at Brooklyn Museum


Amazing fashion, "talking" and "blinking" mannequins and a great inspiration = Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition at Brooklyn Museum. Look how they act! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIIt9WGsTPA&feature=youtu.be  Watch teh video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uII

The Concrete Jungle


What do you expect from New York City? Diversity? I wouldn’t be surprised if that was your answer (suggested by me, in a way, since the word reappears at Just Like NY almost as a mantra). Still, I’m curious how much crap could you take in order to live in this city. New York is not only walking down Fifth Avenue with a cup of Starbucks latte in your hand. In fact, living here has not

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
