What You Really Need Is A Connection…With Yourself
I lead a life that I didn’t expect to be leading right now. (No, I’m not a princess living in a castle.) Six months ago, I decided not to have internet in my apartment. I have it on my pho...

Getting You Off The Hook.

Bachelorette party at a gay bar? No!


Gay Pride party, June 2013 I will be coming back to the topic of gay men in New York often, since I genuinely like the guys and I’m interested in them (still, I have to admit, straight guys interest me even more). It’s worth to investigate the gay club scene, especially if it happens to be populated by women dressed up as princesses. Once you spot a princess, you know you walked in

A Quarter, or 25 cents


In Poland, the most popular of coins is the single grosz („Can I owe you a ‘grosik’…?”), while here it’s definitely 25 cents, or a quarter (which Polish people nicknamed, transcribing it to Polish letters as „kłodra”). It allows you to make a phone call (yes, payphones are still popular here) and is indispensible at the laundromat – washi

Beware of trash!


Mercer street (2009) Since Manhattan is full of exclusive boutiques, richest folks and most beautiful cars, you’d think everything here is top-notch. Wrong! The greatest shock you may experience during your first visit here is the scary amount of trash laying around every corner. It often happens that it’s difficult to cross the sidewalk because of huge plastic bags filled

Yes, yes, no... I don't understand


If you’re afraid to come to New York for fear of your English not being sufficiently fluent (“It was a long time since I had a conversation in English, no one will understand me”), I have some advice: forget the fear. What’s more: the less you try to speak correctly – the way you were taught by your mostly British teachers – the better off you are. Straining y

New York Subway


I decided to locate my new post about the Subway in the „Places” folder on my site, because subway truly is something more than just means of public transportation. It’s an integral part of New York life, without which functioning of the metropolis would be unthinkable. What’s equally important, it’s the world’s only subway operating 24/7. Looking at the ma

How not to get lost in Manhattan


Despite how huge it is, it’s difficult to get lost in Manhattan – its grid-like topography is one of the easiest in the world to navigate. The grid consists of 12 avenues (Ave.) which are perpendicularly crossed by numbered streets (St.). Let’s say you’re supposed to meet someone at the corner of 5th Ave. And 34th St. It’s a direction as clear as a „Stop&rdqu

Freaks, or New Yorkers


The charm of NYC relies on the fact that you never know whom you’re going to meet just around the corner; who will smile at you; who will wish you a good day and who will call you a bitch. You can never know who will surprise you with their eccentric / happy / hysterical / reckless / kind behavior. Do you remember the Benetton ads? That’s nothing compared to what you’re going

You Are What You Wear


You are likely to hear more than once that, according to popular wisdom, „Americans like to dress comfortably”. It is true that the preferred feature of what they wear is not getting in the way of how they function in their everyday lives. New Yorkers are a different story, though. It’s true that they like comfort and prize it highly, but it’s far more important to them t
