Things We Saw Today: Lin-Manuel Miranda Honors Grandfather With Commemorative Plaza in Puerto Rico

Recommended Videos

Shut up. I’m not crying, you’re crying. Lin-Manuel Miranda took to Twitter today to proclaim #YoSoyVegaAlta (I Am Vega Alta), which is the town in Puerto Rico where his family is from. Here’s what he tweeted in full (though you should really check out the Twitter thread above for the pics!):

“To summarize for our English speakers who may have missed yesterday’s details…We opened a plaza in Vega Alta [PR] yesterday. It’s named after my Abuelo Guisin, who was the George Bailey of Vega Alta. It’s got kiosks and museum of my stuff (awards & pics n stuff). Tourists visiting PR–it’s our hope that on your trip, you come to our placita in Vega Alta and take a pic. Spend locally. Y si vives en [PR]…bienvenidos a su casa. Ven y visítanos In Vega Alta. #YoSoyVegaAlta” [And if you live in Puerto Rico, Welcome home. Come and visit us in Vega Alta.]

It’s a wonderful life that I’ve known! Merry Christmas y’old Building and Loan, I’m home!
