Give What You Get

Step 61 - Find Your Lifestyle

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,
