“The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” - Regret Number Three
  I continue my posts about Bronnie Ware’s “Five Top Regrets of the Dying”. I wrote about regret number five and four hereand here. The third regret is: &bdquo...

NY Through My Eyes - West Village, October 2018
I started my You Tube series "NY Through My Eyes". My goal is to explore the most interesting NY neighborhoods. I took off with the West Village. More (and better) to come. I'll be talking a...

“The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” - Regret Number Four
I continue my posts about Bronnie Ware’s “Five Top Regrets of the Dying”. I wrote about regret no. 5 here. The fourth regret is: „I wish I stayed in touch with my friend...

Color Factory - Wake Up Your Inner Child
The problem with NY is that we have too much of everything. There are so many events every day that sometimes - or most of the time - you just choose…to stay at home. And that’s exactly...

Your Opinion of Me Is None of My Business
Yeah, I know. The second you hear the sentence I chose for the title of this post, it sounds very cocky to you. It sounds like my self-esteem is sky-rocketing and my ego is bursting at the seams. Bu...

“The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” - Regret Number Five
For some reason, I’ve kept seeing again the list of “The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying” poping up recently all the time. It’s a list created by Bronnie Ware, based on her best- ...

Step 61 - Forget About “Finding Your Passion”
I’ve already written in Just Like NY about “looking for a passion,” but I have a few new thoughts on the subject.  First of all, forget about this trend of “live yo...

Just Let Us Be the Woman We Want To Be
I was recently riding the subway and I looked around as I always do (unless I’m around my period and don’t want to look at anyone). I looked at women this time (it rarely happens, but th...

Breathwork with XPT
    I admire and follow many people on social media – always in search for an inspiration – and whenever I see some of them come to NY, I almost jump up to the sky at the pro...

Make Your Own Choice
I was recently called out on holding a supposedly strongly stance against marriage. Since it happened twice in one month, I feel like something I said was actually lost in translation.  I neve...

What’s the deal with meditation?
I don’t know what it’s like everywhere else, but here in the US, meditation has become very popular, to the point where companies hire teachers to give...

Give What You Get
A week ago, I got a text message from a guy I went on a date with… a year before. I didn’t expect to hear from him again (which is why I deleted his number), so I was pretty surprised.&...

Patricia Field’s House of Sin


 Patricia Field, 306 Bowery, Manhattan Even though Manhattan keeps providing me with thrills, I don’t recall when was the last time that a mere visit to a store pleased me so much as the one I made a couple of days ago. I went inside, because my attention was caught by some very colorful and slightly campy items displayed outside. That, together with a mannequin (a woman-umbrella) next

MoMA PS1 Warm Up Party


MoMA PS1, 31 August, 2013, photo by Rajas Karnik At last I visited a place known to most of New Yorkers: MoMA PS1 (and decided to celebrate my birthday here!). It’s a quintessence of New York itself. It’s surrounded by concrete and steeped in art. It’s full of fashionable, smiling people, enjoying their drinks and dancing to the rhythm of new bands. Maybe it’s not exactl

Station to Station, or Art by Train(ing)


6th September 2013 at Cine Magic Riverfron Studios, Willimsburg, Brooklyn. Since art has been my interest for a long time now (even if I don’t always understand it and I’m by no means an expert), I’m eager to attend any artistic event I can. As soon as I learned about the “Station to Station” project, I knew I wanted to experience it. It was described as a “h

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

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

Deli, or Small Business the Arab way


When I told my Polish friends about doing my everyday shopping at the local deli, they immediately asked: “de-what?”, “de-where?”. It was then that I realized that a place as common over here as gyms and as familiar as trash laying on the streets is practically unknown in Poland.  Deli – or delicatessen – is a place you come to when you run out of beer o

The Metropolis of New York


It’s hard to convey the enormity of New York to someone who has never been here. Some people think that NY is Manhattan only – the Manhattan of Fifth Avenue only, populated with the heroines of “Sex & the City”. There’s nothing further from the truth: Manhattan is only one of New York City’s five boroughs. The remaining four are: Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and
