In NY, You Look Either For a Job, an Apartment, or a Man


There is this saying that in NY, you either are looking for a partner, for an apartment or for a job. I couldn’t agree more. I know many people in NY already, but only a handful of them have all these things simultaneously. Even if you’re in a relationship, you’ll probably be looking for job, or for an apartment every 1-2 years – there is no other way. This city is not su

Rich in NY


I’m surrounded with wealth in NY. And just to be clear – I’m not talking about my own wealth. I always knew that there were rich people here, but I had no idea what level of wealth we’re talking about. I recently visited a building where  Sting and Jennifer Lopez have their apartments. It’s right next to Columbus Circle, Trump Tower and Central Park. The buildi

What Do You Know Right Away About a New Yorker


When I’m meeting someone who says that they lived in NY for a few years, I know a few things right away: 1.       That they went through a lot. It’s difficult to even explain this sentence. When you live in NYC, you encounter the whole variety of different situations and emotions. There are too many of them to even start discussing them here. 2. &

What Will You Encounter as a Single Person in NYC


photo by Edgard Penadejesus check out his website http://www.edgardpenadejesus.com/ It’s such a weird myth that we, single people, are “very selfish”, because we choose to think and focus only on ourselves. Let me tell you one thing – yes we do, and there is reason for that. Especially when you’re talking about single folks in NYC. The thing is that you have

Does Coaching Make Any Sense?


I must admit that I find the whole discussion around coaching really amusing. “Does it make sense…?”; “Should they allow it to be happening…?”. It’s hilarious. I wonder why it bothers so many people so much. It’s pretty common in the USA that people have their coaches. Americans are really into the whole self-development thing – and you kno

Where to Spot Famous People?


I heard this question many times already and the answer is very simple – everywhere. You just never know when you will run into someone. I’ve seen some of them already. I saw at a the same bar in Chelsea in Manhattan: Michael Phelps (and I was introduced to him), John Waters (I was so happy to see him that I kept smiling at him and he smiled back at me), Gabriel Garcia Bernal (I made

What I Grew to Like Since I Moved To NYC


There have been many changes within me, more than I probably imagine. But there are a few visible ones: I grew to like: -          Donuts. I love Polish donuts, but I used to have them only once a year. Since I tried donuts from Doughnut Plant (have you ever tried a Pistacchio donut?), it became really difficult for me to avoid this place. I still h

Who Will You Meet On a 2-Hour Subway Ride?


I wrote about subway commute right after I started Just Like NY. People who have never visited NY, don’t realize how huge this city is. On Saturday I decided to visit my friend who works in the Bronx. And because I live down in Brighton Beach now and his stop was the last subway stop up in the Bronx, it was really quite a ride (see pic below). It took me 2.30h to get there! It would have t
