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
Four years in NY passed for me almost two months ago. Four years is a lot to live abroad. Every year I do a summary of what I’ve learned during yet another year. This past one was amazing, to ...

Paul Nicklen Gallery

Live from NY, it’s Saturday Night Live!!!


Justin & Jimmy These are the words that open one of my favorite TV shows. Many of you are more than familiar with it, but I bet some of you still need to hear about it. Saturday Night Live, or SNL, is one of the most popular shows on American TV. SNL is made in NY, but it was created by the Canadian-born Lorne Michaels. It’s broadcast on Saturday nights (appropriately enough) and it h

Fast Casual, or Fast and Healthy


Have you heard of “fast-casual” places? Me neither, even though I have visited them. These are the places that first appeared in the 1990s, such as Panera or Chipotle, which you find nowadays all over Manhattan. What are they about?

NY Gifts


If you haven't bought Christmas gifts yet and you wanna buy something that has a bit of NY flavor I recommend a few websites. For those who live in NY I suggest to visit the holiday markets - the one in Union Square and the second one in Columbus Circle. I found these guys over there.  pasteusa.com They offer t-shirts and posters. @pigeonbypiegon I don't like pigeons, but I like the

SHOPPING!


Let’s say it right away – museums may be fun, but one of the reasons people are coming to NY is shopping. All people coming here plan at least one day as exclusively devoted to shopping for new clothes. I used to do it, too. Let me warn you right away: I like to shop at discount places, since I truly hate the feeling of seeing an expensive thing I bought recently suddenly being sold

Places You Need to Visit in NYC, Part 2


Last time, we parted at Times Square, and since I left you there, walk a couple of blocks to… 6. Grand Central Station. You really should come here, especially if you happen to be a movie buff. Many famous scenes were shot there, including the famous ball sequence in “Fisher King” [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-D9dh6S5Sg] and it’s worth it to check out for yourself ju
