I was born and bred in Washington Heights, a stone’s throw from the George Washington Bridge. My family migrated to NYC on Christmas Eve in 1965. Since then, my family has gone to great lengths to re-enforce the bonds between those of us here in NYC and those of us in Santo Domingo, en “La Capital.” We visit La Capital annually, spending our summers on the beach and swaying in rocking chairs on las gallerias… Also, we’ve bought property. We own our humble abodes in NYC and in the Dominican Republic. We are responsible for and proud of our presence, wherever we are!
