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...

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

Where to Get Tickets


NY attractions can well make you dizzy. You come here in hope of seeing so much. You may ask, where do you buy tickets to all those amazing events and objects…? This post will give you some basic information.  Empire State Building – You don’t need to buy tickets earlier, you can get them on the spot. Museums – The above applies to them, as well; remember that mos

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? Basically, they quickly serve you pre-prepared food that’s not exactly “fast food”. What sets them apart from fast food joints is simpl

„The Lion King” on Broadway


I have wished for a long time for a movie, show or a concert to envelop me completely and make me feel those special vibrations inside that enable me to walk three feet above the ground. And finally they’re here: the beloved butterflies in my stomach. It’s all thanks to Broadway, and more specifically – to the stage version of “The Lion King”. I have no idea how di

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
