Eloise at the Museum-on view through Oct. 9. Skibble down to the New York Historical Society and celebrate the feisty charm of Eloise! Relive the audacious heroine's adventures in Moscow and Paris, and explore her life at The Plaza, where she lounged with books and caused mischief from her suite and bubbly “bawthroom.” Showcasing more than 75 objects—including original manuscript pages, sketchbooks, photographs, and vintage dolls—this whimsical exhibition reveals the creative collaboration between cabaret star Kay Thompson and illustrator Hilary Knight that brought the precocious character to life. Plus, join us all summer for Eloise-themed activities and events!

HUNTINGTON LEARNING CENTER
237 W. 72nd St., New York
Huntington Learning Center’s Summer Learning Programs. Research shows that students take steps backwards in knowledge and skills over summer break. RAND Education’s 2011 study shows that summer learning programs mitigate summer learning loss and lead to achievement gains. Huntington offers two summer programs. Our Summer Advantage Program helps students (grades third-seventh) build skills in writing, math, and effective studying. Our Advanced Study Skills Program gives students (eighth grade and higher) strategies necessary for effective studying; including time management, organization, goal setting, and writing college essays.
