El Cangrejo was at one time Panama's main Jewish neighborhood. The principal reminders of those times are the Einstein head sculpture and a nearby street named Via de los Combatientes del Gheto de Varsovia

Punk rock has also left its little marks on the neighborhood, and if

you're into that sort of thing there's also a store to supply your needs...

heroes like General Belgrano, one of the early Latin American independence fighters
