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.
I’ve done some thinking recently and tried to figure out the basic way people come up with an excuse. It’s a broad topic, but I’ve mostly experienced one response from variety of ...

Williamsburg Is Over
Summer’s almost here, so I decided to take a walk in Williamsburg, and it just reassured me that… thinks are really over for this neighborhood. I moved to Greenpoint (a sister neighbor...

It’s Your Man Or...Your Girlfriend?

We all pretend it’s normal…
We all pretend that life in NY is normal. Just today I had the day off, which isn’t usually for a Thursday, and I decided to go to the gym before noon. I got on a train at 10am and...

Poor Rich Kids
I have mentioned money in NYC on Just Like NY a few times already. There is a lot of money here, and people spend lots of it on a variety of weird and stupid things sometimes....

Do You Want To Be Famous?
Because I’ve been living here for almost five years now, I tend to forget what kind of place NYC is. It’s where fantasy keeps meeting reality. The longer you live here, the more “...

What Do Independent Women Really Want?


You mean, other than sex? There are a few things. But to understand what an independent woman really wants, you have to first understand who she is. She is usually a well-educated woman, she is usually 25 and up – most likely, she’s in her 30s. When she is about to turn 30, she finally realizes who she is and what is it that she wants. And things start getting complicated. Because sh

I’ll Take You To a Temple.


Going to the gym is a huge part of NYC lifestyle. All my friends go to the gym and most of them go almost every day (ok, they're gay, but not all my friends are). The first thing that surprised me when I moved to NY was that gyms were cheap. Well, you can find the expensive ones too, but you can easily go to the gym for only $10 a month (!). I did that for a year. Some of them are $40 and $60 and

Immigrant Life


  I’ve been living in NYC for over three and a half years now. And boy, it’s been a real journey. No one can ever prepare you for that. You come over here thinking you’ll have a “Sex & the City” life and it’s not even fucking close. It’s difficult, different, there are so many unexpected things that are happening to you that you just start q

Holiday Season Is On… Yet Again


It’s amazing how they force the holiday season onto us here! There was still one week of November left when I walked into a bank and there were Christmas songs on. Calm down, people. This is what they do over here – the turkey leftovers are still on the table and they already turn Christmas season on. The Christmas trees came to town – they are already everywhere in the city &n

Why Did We Wake Up Sad on Wednesday Morning?


It’s been almost two weeks now, so it’s time to move on. We had the presidential election on Tuesday, November 8th and I this date will cut a deep mark on America’s body and psyche. What happened? Donald Trump won – and to say that many people didn’t expect it at all would be an understatement. Most people here in NYC, were just devastated. I watched the results wi

We All Look the Same, or: What Would New Yorker buy?


When I first moved to NY, I thought everyone here was entirely unique and that literally everyone looked different. The longer I live here, the more I think we all look the same. I’m not talking about the skin color, hair type, or face of course. I’m talking about the way we dress. I already wrote on Just Like NY about two basic colors New Yorkers love – black and white –

Polish People in NYC


There is this sentence I’ve been hearing from Polish people ever since I got to NY (please, don’t get angry, my dear compatriots): “I didn’t come here to meet Polish people”. What’s more, my answer to a question: “Are you dating any Polish guys?”, usually was the exact same one. Where does it come from? When we decide to immigrate to a different co

3 years of Just Like NY


Suddenly, it’s been three years since I started Just Like NY. I was thinking recently how great would it be to do only this for a living: write and explore NY every day. But it’s impossible right now. Sometimes someone says to me: “Hey, I can see you are still running your website”, and this never fails put a smile on my face, because for me it’s obvious that &ndash
