Step 44 - How Do You See Yourself?
photo by http://www.wdkproductions.com/ I wonder what kind of picture of yourself do you have in your own mind? I’m not asking about the one you present to the world, but about the real ...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood s...

Step 43: Have the Courage to Stand Alone
Photo by wdkproductions.com I heard this sentence: “Have the courage to stand alone”, spoken by Brene Brown in a conversation with Marie Forleo a few weeks ago, and it keeps ringing in ...

Walk with Me, Part 3 – Soho
  Soho is one of my favorite places in NY. And it’s not because of the fancy stores (I don’t have the desire to buy a Chanel bag, I want someone to give me that bag for free.) It's...

Step 42 – How do we not go crazy?
It’s very easy to go crazy in NY. It’s way too easy. That’s why at some point, you have to slow down and ask yourself how your mind is doing. There are a few different ways I ...

Step 41 – Close the Open Tabs
I recently noticed that everyone, including myself, says, “OMG, this month passed by so fast! Where did the time go?” And I feel that every year we say it more often. Have you noticed th...

The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

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. I especially recommend the Saturday (6 June) Blue Note Festival, which looks really interesting. You can see the entire line-up here: http://www.centralpark.com/guide/activities/concerts/summerstage-festival.

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

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. Then learn why is it OK to walk on red li

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

Easter on the Brighton Beach - Coney Island boardwalk


I went for short walks on Sunday and Monday mornings, not even taking my camera and I saw Easter pictures that I didn't expect. Great walks!

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
