Last Minute Summer Fun for Kids and Families in NYC

It's still a rawther good time to scamper over to the New-York Historical Society to see the “Eloise” exhibit, based, of course, on the iconic 6-year-old heroine who lived in the Plaza Hotel. (The fabulous picture books, written by Kay Thompson and illustrated by Hilary Knight, were first published in the 1950s.) More than 75 objects are on view, from original manuscript pages to vintage dolls. Don’t miss the portrait that was once stolen from the Plaza. Family activities throughout its run complement the exhibit. Long live Weenie and Skiperdee! Runs through Oct. 9. New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West,
