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...

Do You Know Who You Are And What You Need? Whoopi Goldberg’s Thoughts on Relationships


I just finished reading Whoopi Goldberg’s book “I Someone Says ‘You Complete Me’, Run!”, which made me nod in astonishment as I read it. Not because Whoopi has opened some new horizons for me, but because I had the feeling I wrote the book myself. The famous actress writes about her observations of relationships, which she made quite a few since she started to host

„Honestly, Why Don’t You Have a Boyfriend?”


“But honestly: Why don’t you have a boyfriend/husband?” is one of those boomerang questions I keep getting and I keep not understanding, like the artist I wrote about in my previous post. First of all: what kind of question is that? Are we being born with a guy at our side, who then falls off? Or do you get a boyfriend the way you acquire knowledge during your school years, an

„Hey, Where Are You Going? It’s Friday Night In New York City”


It’s Friday night in New York City. You just had one of those pleasant evenings of hanging out with friends, you went to a couple of nice places, you had two drinks and you float towards the subway as it carried aloft by an invisible cloud. And suddenly you realize, you’re in Manhattan (believe it or not, but you can forget about it at times), right in the middle of one of the most b

3 Seconds, 3 Looks


Manhattan turns you into an animal. Your senses reach a new level; you’re like a jungle predator, receiving stimuli with every single part of your body and always ready to engage to meet your adversary. The difference is, in Manhattan your adversary is gorgeous and – instead of running away from him – you feel like climbing him instead. Over here, you stare at people practicall

Twentysomethings vs. Thirtysomethings


I’m over 30 myself, but I have friends who are a full decade younger and I keep noticing differences in our mental processes. I am so glad I have their stage already behind me!  (I came up with this post sitting in a coffee shop, thank God I had NY Times with me)   20 I met a guy! He’s amazing! He’s so funny, inteligent, we are into the same things! You know we ev

Meeting Bono


People have watched so many American films that when they finally come to NY, they are counting on a miracle. And if not a miracle, then at least something amazing enough to make their Instagram account explode. Everyone walks around in excitement and looks for… one doesn’t even know for what exactly. That’s why I was so amazed by a situation I saw recently. It all happened i

Dad Bod, or Plain Bullshit


I already wrote at Just Like NY about how New Yorkers take care of their good looks: they work out regularly and are careful about their eating habits. Everyone here tries to be fit – they don’t have much choice, since everyone else is. So when I suddenly hear that “dad bod” is the latest thing, my bullshit detector goes off. What’s “dad bod”? It’s

Looking For Sex


Because of a certain world-famous TV show, the word “sex” is one of the first ones to enter your mind when you think of NYC. But what’s the truth of it? The truth is exactly as seen on TV. I alreay wrote at Just Like NY of the dating sites, but in fact you don’t even need them to pleasantly spend your night  overhere. Or a day. Or a day, and then a night. All you nee
