I have had a lifelong interest in history (Hunter College - Bachelors in History) and am a member of The Bronx, Brooklyn, and New York Historical Societies. I also regularly volunteer as a docent at the Museum of the City of New York. In 2010, I was the recipient of The Bronx Tourism Award from The Bronx Tourism Council for my unparalleled commitment to sharing the rich history of The Bronx.

Along with history, I have a true passion for people (Rutgers University - Masters of Social Work) and love nothing more than to share with tourists and natives alike the best food, shopping, art, and architecture of my “hometown.”

Booking a SusanSez NYC Walkabouts is a sure way to go “off the beaten path” and explore the little-known treasures that make my “backyard” the most vibrant city in the world. I’ve been told my love for New York is infectious and my tours often surprise native New Yorkers who find themselves discovering its untold history.

If you’ve been to the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, had your fill of Times Square and circled Manhattan by bus too many times, this is your chance to escape the swarms of tourists, see where “real New Yorkers” live, and enjoy a truly authentic NYC experience.
