Susan Mills Birnbaum's lifelong fascination with history ignited a journey that transformed her into an ardent advocate for preserving the past and sharing its riches. Armed with a Bachelor's degree in History from Hunter College, Susan's affiliation with The Bronx, Brooklyn, and New York Historical Societies exemplified her commitment to historical preservation.

As a devoted docent at the Museum of the City of New York, Susan's ability to bring history to life became evident. Her dedication culminated in the prestigious 2010 Bronx Tourism Award, 2023 Women in Tourism & Guiding Spirit is from GANYC honoring her unmatched dedication to revealing The Bronx's vibrant story.

Pairing her historical expertise with a Master's degree in Social Work from Rutgers University, Susan seamlessly merges her passion for people with her love for history. This synergy led her to creating SusanSez NYC Walkabouts—a platform that offers a unique, off-the-beaten-path exploration of the city's lesser-known wonders.
