Step 44 - How Do You See Yourself?
photo by http://www.wdkproductions.com/ I wonder what kind of picture of yourself do you have in your own mind? I’m not asking about the one you present to the world, but about the real ...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood s...

Step 43: Have the Courage to Stand Alone
Photo by wdkproductions.com I heard this sentence: “Have the courage to stand alone”, spoken by Brene Brown in a conversation with Marie Forleo a few weeks ago, and it keeps ringing in ...

Walk with Me, Part 3 – Soho
  Soho is one of my favorite places in NY. And it’s not because of the fancy stores (I don’t have the desire to buy a Chanel bag, I want someone to give me that bag for free.) It's...

Step 42 – How do we not go crazy?
It’s very easy to go crazy in NY. It’s way too easy. That’s why at some point, you have to slow down and ask yourself how your mind is doing. There are a few different ways I ...

Step 41 – Close the Open Tabs
I recently noticed that everyone, including myself, says, “OMG, this month passed by so fast! Where did the time go?” And I feel that every year we say it more often. Have you noticed th...

The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

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

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

Strictly Paper-Cup Coffee


What’s the deal with the coffee? Some of you may wonder why New Yorkers cannot afford a coffee machine and instead get their coffee on the run and flaunt their paper cups in the street. Of course they can afford a coffee machine; that’s not the issue at all.  New Yorkers don’t have the time to drink coffee at home. New York is a gigantic metropolis, and it makes you move

A Real Feast: Cream Cheese bagel


You’ve landed in NYC, you won the battle with your jet lag and you go “on the town” as soon as the sun rises. You’re hungry and giddy when you think of the feast that awaits you. Yes, you’ll find cuisine from all over the world here – and possibly get dizzy from the variety of choice. But before you try out something exotic like sushi (already popular in Pola

You Don’t Walk Here, You Run


Do you know that feeling…? You quietly walk around, sipping on your coffee, paying full attention to the buildings around you…? You may as well forget it when you’re here. You don’t walk here, you run; you don’t sip on your coffee, you tip the cup in hope of finding your own mouth amidst all the commotion; you only see things three feet in front of you, unless you
