Don’t judge by the chapter you walked into.
It’s a new year, so I want you to change one thing. I would say “we,” but I’ve already been working on it the last two years (not that I’ve mastered it yet). Don’...

Why Some Women Don’t Want to Have Kids (And Why the Reason Is Not What You Think It Is)
Yes, I want to write about it (again), because it bothers me. I recently realized I don’t want to have kids (now and maybe ever). And I realized how difficult it is for a woman not only to adm...

You’re Fine
2018 has been a very successful year for me, because I finally understand that I’m completely fine. I just look at myself and I finally see myself. It took me half my life to understand it, bu...

It’s Profound to Be Understood
As Whoopi Goldberg said in her book „If He Says: ‚You complete me’ — Run!”, which I’ve already written about on JLNY some time ago, people tend to mistake love fo...

You’re Always Becoming
Michelle Obama released her book memoir, „Becoming”, and I keep seeing it everywhere in NYC. I haven’t read it yet and now I really want to. Not because I consider Barack Obam...

Drop This Attitude
I just had my best friend Gosia visited me from Chicago a few weeks ago. We spent the whole weekend together excited about each other. We did a few activities, but what was the most important was th...

Is Your Partner’s Skin Color or Country of Origin Relevant At All?
I will answer the titular question right away: „I don’t think so”. And I’m pretty sure I am right. I honestly don’t understand this whole theory about having a partner ...

How To Get the Body You Want
Have you ever said to yourself: “I’m so fat”…? Or “I can’t even look at myself”…?. Or “I will never lose all this weight”…? Or &l...

Accept the challenge
Until now, my favorite sentence was always: “Hope he’ll change after we get married.” (Yeah,  sure, into a pumpkin…) But there is a new contender that I find equally ...

NY Love Story A.D. 2019
I don’t like romantic comedies. And I can tell you why. Once, it used to be my favorite genre, but I grew up since then (a bit). Also — I moved to NY. Romantic comedies just don’t ...

When Was the Last Time Your Journal Embarrassed You?
When was the last time you said to yourself: “This is embarrassing”, and you actually meant yourself…? Well, it just happened to me. I sat down to write about something else and I...

Why It’s Important To Not Look Like Shit
Here is my question: Why do you think it’s a good idea to look like shit at home? Some people put on their worst clothes at home - clothes with holes, stretched out, worn out, old and ugly. (B...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita

added: 2017-10-10 , category: Discover NY

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 so I separated them.

Nolita has a bit different vibe than Soho. It’s very cozy. Luckily there are still good looking people around, but there is more…swag about them. I love coming in here and just walk around these streets, it relaxes me.

I usually get off at the Broadway/Lafayette subway station (B, D, F, M, 6 trains) and walk towards Lafayette Street. I usually grab coffee at La Colombe coffee shop on Lafayette Street (next to the Supreme store, 274 Lafayette).Then I walk around Nolita streets – Elizabeth, Mulberry, Mott and Prince. They have this typical NY charm and I think it’s essential to come here when you’re visiting NY.

 

Here are my other favorite places:

 

Cafe Habana - 17 Prince Street

 

Rice to Riches - I love the design of that spot and I would occasionally buy its rice pudding, 37 Spring Street

 

McNally Jackson bookstore – one of my favorites bookstores in NY, 52 Prince Street

 

MoMA store – if you are looking for an original gift for someone, 81 Spring Street

 

T2 – a tea store with a huge variety of loose teas and tea accessories, 67 Prince Street

 

Le Labo - 233 Elizabeth Street (a favorite store of mine with expensive perfumes)

Dyptique on 242 Mott Street (perfumes again)

 

Black Seed Bagels – bagel store, a bit too expensive, Elizabeth Street

 

Little Cupcake Bakeshop – with delicious cupcakes, 30 Prince Street

 

Mc Nally Bookstore
