Taught by Sean O'Brien

Sean O’Brien is finishing his Master’s degree in History at Brooklyn College. His focus is in the Age of Democratic Revolutions and New York City history. He lives in Brooklyn, and spends most of his free time tracking down the hidden history of NYC (all 400+ years of it.) He is also a writer, a musician, music and film nerd, a decent cook, and an even better drinker. (If the Irish name didn't give that away.)
