I Can’t Help Women if They Don’t Want to Help Themselves
Ladies, I can’t cope with you. I really can’t, not anymore. I keep hearing women complaining about men. They complain how badly men treat them, how terribly guys behave towards them, wha...

How To Say Goodbye To the Old Year?
My goodbye to the year that has just ended usually takes on a form of a few hour session with myself. What I usually do is I take my list of goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year to di...

What Does It Mean To Be a True Gentleman
One of my male friends sent me an article arguing that chivalry is not dead and that there are true gentlemen out there who would “make us melt”. The article presented us with 9 things t...

How do I conquer fear?
Fear rules our lives, whether you want to admit it or not. All of your decisions are based on fear. All of your choices are rooted in your fears. You don’t apply for a j...

Step 51- What does it take for you to understand what it’s all about?
I just finished Tim Ferriss’ book, “Tribe of Mentors,” and one of the people featured in his book is a woman named Turia Pitt. I haven’t looked up every p...

Step 50 - Slow Down (Daga). Speed Detox

What changed in me after Tony Robbins’ workshops?
  In March 2016, I attended Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power workshops. I wasn’t going to write about it at all, since I didn’t know what people would think, ...

When I know you’re not a New Yorker?
  I think I’m becoming an expert at recognizing real New Yorkers. What do I mean by that? I love watching people, taking notice of their behaviors and habits. That means I watch New Yo...

“I’m Not…”…? I say It’s Bullshit
I think that many people have no idea how important it is to pay attention the words you use. I believe I have written about that on Just Like NY already, but it’s important to keep talking abo...

Body – dangerous field
This is a difficult topic, but I still want to write about it: body and body image. We all know how the media treats our bodies and what kind of body image is presented to us. I’ve written about...

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

Suzanne Heintz


I first of Suzanne Heintz and her project early this month and I became a fan right away. I looked at a picture of here with a big Ken mannequin, I read that her project is a reaction to all those questions along the lines of “Why are you not married with kids despite being thirty?” and I immediately thought: “Ha! This is me!’. We became soul mates right away. Suzanne, r

Chelsea vs. Lower East Side


Lower East Side It so happened I have visited Lower East Side a lot this year (especially the vicinity of Clinton, Rivington, Stanton, Orchard and Ludlow Streets) and I have to say I have genuine affection for the neighborhood. I keep meeting artists, journalists, architects and actors there – people who have already achieved something, but remain creative and interested in others. Every

Many Faces of Brighton Beach


I once wrote at Just Like NY about Brighton Beach, where Russian and Arab cultures mingle side by side. Those two entire different mindsets manage to share the neighborhood. They are separated by two streets, once of which is dominated by Hispanics. Even though it’s been a year since I moved here, I still wonder how is it possible that a culture as orthodox as the Arab one (most families c

The Types You Meet at a NY Beach


Practically every time I go to the NY beach (the one closest to me is Brighton Beach in Brooklyn), I meet the same set of human types. 1.       Music Lover. The proud owner of a boom box, blasting his favorite music. Only yesterday I saw three groups like that – one consisted of five guys in baseball hats, loose pants and white T-shirts (typical Brooklyn styl

Selfie On the Run, or: How to Party at Governors Ball


This year, once again I took part in the Governors Ball music festival (this time for one day only) and once again I have to say that – at least as far as the music is concerned – the event is awesome. But… Yeah, there is a big “but”, namely two things that made me summon up my inner Buddha more than once. No. 1 is the omnipresent teenagers (or twenty-somethings,
