Born and raised in New York, Susan Birnbaum always had a fascination with her city's history and unparalleled cuisine. She transformed those interests into a career when she founded SusanSez NYC Walkabouts, from which she leads slightly atypical walking tours. Rather than hit the major tourist attractions, she explores the city through its restaurants and neighborhood gems, giving her guests a taste of what life in the city has to offer along with a sampling of how it came to be. She conducts five unique tours, including the Farm to Fork Tour in East Village—which provides samples of seasonal eats—an Italian-eatery-focused stroll through the Bronx, and a Lower East Side walk that celebrates the pushcart fare once available on every street corner before the carts grew roots and sprouted into restaurants.
