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

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

Step 35 - Get Yourself Motivated

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...

Park Slope


I’ve been wanting to visit Brooklyn’s Park Slope for a while now, since I knew it was famous for its brownstones and… its high rents. Oh yeah – to live here, you need a really fat wallet. The reason for that is mostly the neighboring Prospect Park, the largest park in Brooklyn, almost as large as Central Park in Manhattan. Both Prospect and Central Parks are much more th

Your First Visit in NY – What You Need to Know


In case you come to New York for the first time, I encourage you to read some posts which I wrote soon after I started to run this blog. They will provide you with some pointers as to what may happen to you in this crazy city.   First of all, read “How Not to Get Lost in Manhattan”, so that you learn how to move around the island.

Cards for All Occasions


7th Avenue Brooklyn One of the things that truly surprised me here and which I grew to actually like, is the habit of sending greeting cards. Everyone does it here, and on every possible occasion. If you go to a christening, or to a reception (as well as in thousand other cases), you not only bring a card for the occasion, but you usually send another one to thank your host on the next day. Tha

The New York Pizza’s Secret


Grimaldi’s pizza Pizza is the queen of New York City food. You will find it here at every corner: the price for a slice starts at $1. The classic New York pizza is margherita. You can laugh at this, but I assure you its flavor is completely different than that of any other pizza in the world. You know why? Thanks to the water. I am serious. New York tap water is one of the best in the wor

A Spring Walk In West Village


Since Spring has just come to town (not quite, though, as it was really chilly today), I started visiting my favorite neighborhoods. West Village is definitely one of them. All you need to do is to take one of the orange subway lines (F, M,  D, B), or the blue lines (A, C, E) and get off at West 4 Street. I always start there, right next to the IFC movie theatre – and finish there, as w

NY Food You Need to Try, Part I


There are a couple of things you simply have to taste while in NY. Of course, there’s no end to delicious food in this city. But without these few items your trip over here won’t ever be complete. 1. Bagel, which I already wrote about. It’s an absolute must. Since everyone likes a different topping, I should not try to convince you to have any particular one – and yet I wi

At Night in New York City


I bet many of you imagine New York at night to look like a scene from American crime movies. Of course, there are parts of this town where police chases, shootings and drugs are a reality (no, I have never been there myself). But if you ask me in general if New York is safe, my reply is yes. Especially if we are talking about Manhattan. I am not saying nothing bad ever happens here, for I have h
