This exhibition remembers through photos and documentation, a time during the 1930s when the Nazi’s allowed Jews to emigrate out of Germany. But no country was willing to take them but the Dominican Republic. Here, the stories of the Jews who settled on an abandoned banana plantation in Sosúa tell of the diificult time of adapting. While most people buy hot dogs and grab a beer at expensive restaurants in the Seaport mall, you’ll be smart and head over to Burritoville for inexpensive and delicious California inspired burritos, all under $10. For drinks, Jeremy’s Ale House has a lively crowd and a beer list that will get you a pint for $5 and under. If you get down to the financial district early, check out Century 21. They won’t try to sell you some property, but they have some great designer clothing on the cheap, plus the place is huge to roam.
