Don’t judge by the chapter you walked into.
It’s a new year, so I want you to change one thing. I would say “we,” but I’ve already been working on it the last two years (not that I’ve mastered it yet). Don’...

Why Some Women Don’t Want to Have Kids (And Why the Reason Is Not What You Think It Is)
Yes, I want to write about it (again), because it bothers me. I recently realized I don’t want to have kids (now and maybe ever). And I realized how difficult it is for a woman not only to adm...

You’re Fine
2018 has been a very successful year for me, because I finally understand that I’m completely fine. I just look at myself and I finally see myself. It took me half my life to understand it, bu...

It’s Profound to Be Understood
As Whoopi Goldberg said in her book „If He Says: ‚You complete me’ — Run!”, which I’ve already written about on JLNY some time ago, people tend to mistake love fo...

You’re Always Becoming
Michelle Obama released her book memoir, „Becoming”, and I keep seeing it everywhere in NYC. I haven’t read it yet and now I really want to. Not because I consider Barack Obam...

Drop This Attitude
I just had my best friend Gosia visited me from Chicago a few weeks ago. We spent the whole weekend together excited about each other. We did a few activities, but what was the most important was th...

Is Your Partner’s Skin Color or Country of Origin Relevant At All?
I will answer the titular question right away: „I don’t think so”. And I’m pretty sure I am right. I honestly don’t understand this whole theory about having a partner ...

How To Get the Body You Want
Have you ever said to yourself: “I’m so fat”…? Or “I can’t even look at myself”…?. Or “I will never lose all this weight”…? Or &l...

Accept the challenge
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...

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

Christmas Time in NY


I've heard: "NY must be magical during the christmas time" so many times, that I decided to show you how I see NY at this time of a year.  I went for a very long walk with my camera and managed to capture all those "must see places". I started from the 5th Avenue at Central Park and the Plaza Hotel, then I went to the 6th Avenue and took pictures of all those most known sp

Pam Ann, or Flying Off the Handle


Pam Ann at XL club, December 2013 Do you know Pam Ann? I didn’t – not until a certain December evening. A friend of mine told me he bought me a ticket to her show and that we were going. I fell in love with her from the very first minute. What was so great about her show was that you couldn’t tell what would come next. But I’m getting ahead of myself.   Pam

House Balls According to Gaskin, or What Is „Vouging”


I chanced upon the article on Gaskin’s photography in one of the November issues of the „New York Times”. The subject of the pictures struck me as interesting enough to make me spend an entire evening browsing the internet. Gerard H. Gaskin is a photographer born in Trinidad; for over two decades now he has been portraying the undeground gay and transgender scenes. He deals wi
