Where Are You From?...Who Cares?

June in NY, Part II


Some more June events in NY. The first part is to be found here. 8. Throughout the summer, Summerstage at Central Park is happening; it includes a lot of high-profile cultural events.

June in New York City, Part I


Finally, my favorite time in New York is here. Not only is the sun shining and everyone is smiling, but also there’s a number of outdoor events lined up, most of them free of charge. So that you don’t get confused by the richness of events, I decided to point out some key ones: 1.       Summer begins with Sunset Jammin’ in Brooklyn Bridge Par

New York Musicians


New York City literally belongs to musicians. You will see them every day on the street: they traverse the city, carrying their heavy instruments. You see them on the subway at every time of day and night: on their way to a gig, on their way from a gig, or in search for a gig. As I wrote before on Just Like NY, they form the largest group of dreamers coming to this city. I don’t know how m

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

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
