Step 37 – Don’t give up on this year yet
  We are in the middle of August and that means that over 7 months of this year are gone. But the good news is that 5 of them are still left. It’s almost half of the year! 5 months is roug...

10 Types of Most Annoying Subway People I See Every Day:
1.        First of all, I think that a person who gets on a train and keeps their backpack on (when it’s crowded) should be slapped in the face right away. What&rs...

Come For A Walk With Me, Part 2: Dumbo, Brooklyn Bridge Park
This is definitely one of my favorite walks in NY and it always makes me fall in love with NY again. Take the F train and get off at York St. station in Brooklyn. You’re in Dumbo now (I wrote ab...

Step 37 - How Can You Convince Someone To Change?
We all know this situation: someone is stuck with a wrong partner and you want them to finally end their nightmare, or someone is struggling with something (weight/ money problems/ family problems)....

Surfing
When I was a kid, I remember watching people surfing on TV (where else could I have watched them, growing up in Poland…?) and dreaming to be like them one day. Then, soon after I graduated, I...

Step 36 - Be a Doer
There is this great app ad on the subway that always makes me smile. It says: “In doers we trust”. And I always think the same thing: “Yes, it’s always up to the doers”...

My Four Years in NY
Four years in NY passed for me almost two months ago. Four years is a lot to live abroad. Every year I do a summary of what I’ve learned during yet another year. This past one was amazing, to ...

Step 35 - Get Yourself Motivated
I listened to an interesting interview some time ago, in which a girl from a small village asked what to do to get yourself motivated if you can’t motivate yourself and you don’t have pe...

Paul Nicklen Gallery
There is a lot of bad things to be said about social media, but I believe that when used it wisely, it’s a great tool overall. I followed a photographer, Chris Burkard (@chriburkard), on Instagr...

Step 34 - Transformation.
I just finished reading a book “Brave enough” by Cheryl Strayed, in which she says something that moved me: “Transformation doesn’t ask that you stop being you. It demands th...

When Is the Right Time To Say No To a Guy?
The great thing about getting older is that your brain keeps working better and better. You finally see certain connections occur and you don’t do as many stupid things that end up hurting you...

Step 33 - There is Nothing Between Me and Me
I can truly say that I love myself. Or maybe even that I’m in love with myself. And before you think or say that I’m shallow or narcissistic (which completely missed my point), I’l...

Weekend in SoHo


Because the Global Warming surprised us with a hot weekend (over 60 degrees in February)  everyone went to the streets. And by “everyone” I really mean everyone. So did I. I had different plans, but I just decided to skip the gym (yes, I felt guilty a bit) and get off in SoHo to simply walk around. I did it for at least 3 hours on Saturday and for a bit shorter time on Sunday. I

Upper West Side


I love to sleep in different parts of New York (I mean at my friends’ apartments), because every neighborhood is different. I had a chance to spend a few nights on the Upper West Side recently, on 104th and Broadway to be exact. The thing that grabbed my attention right away was the fact that it’s cleaner than in other parts of Manhattan. What I also liked about the Upper West Sid

Fancy Lifestyle in NYC


Drapes went down Lots of people (and probably most of you guys) associate living in NY with a fancy lifestyle. Let me tell you this once again – there is a group of people here that lives like that, but trust me, it is not that large. What’s more, even if they party a lot at the best places, they still work a lot. Or they just are on cocaine all the time (you wouldn’t believe

Night of Beauty at Marie Lou&D


I’ve already mentioned on Just Like NY that living in New York is nothing like “Sex & The City”. We work a lot in here, and we have less time for ourselves than one could think. And this bullshit - I’ll just grab a coffee and come back with a new pair of Manolo Blahniks – doesn’t really happen. I can grab coffee and buy myself a protein bar or a muffin to

Pop Souk – Fun, Fashion and Booze


I experienced Pop Souk for the first time last month. You may ask, what is it? It’s an event where New Yorkers from all five boroughs, nightlife personalities, artists, musicians, DJs, designers, fashionistas and assorted nutcases gather together and create a fun place, filled with fashion and booze. It's more than just a marketplace, even though those talented New Yorkers sell their perso

Watching Margaret Cho And Jerry Seinfeld Live – Dreams Come True!


Last Thursday, I experienced something truly magical. One of my colleagues, Brian, knew that I’m a diehard fan of Jerry Seinfeld (the most popular stand-up comedian in the United States and the creator of the hit sitcom “Seinfeld”) and that my biggest dream was to watch him live, so he invited me for a special show at the Stress Factory Comedy Club in New Jersey. The special th

Open your eyes


I am sometimes saddened by the fact that some people can come to New York and completely misunderstand the city. You read it’s the most exciting place on earth and as you come here, you try to experience everything – intensely, deeply, and preferably within a week’s time. And yet the experience of New York lies in something different, and only people who come here with open hea

Jewish New York


There are many Orthodox Jews living in New York. I already had a chance to observe their customs when on a trip in Israel many years ago, so I wasn’t really surprised by anything I saw here (I already wrote on Just Like NY about Williamsburg, which has a large Jewish population). This doesn’t mean that I am not taken aback by some aspects of their culture, like childbearing. They usu
