Limelight is an iconic New York City landmark that’s been reborn...an innovative and exciting destination in the vibrant Flatiron / Chelsea neighborhood for fashion, food, and fun!
Old church made into a night club and got converted into shopping center? Outside never changed but inside definitely is more nightclub-ish black and white color scheme. Now Grimaldi is there
Closes. David Barton is taking the place.
Grimaldi's pizza, sans line.
Recommend your tourist visits to come shop here! They will be impressed with having very chic boutiques inside of a church looking building!
p.s. Lady with the "gold" crap for your face... when you have2 women who absolutely have credit cards, you just don't focus on one person - you engage the group . Thus, you got zero sales...
Not at all like the old days!
Having transformed from a church to a club to a mall, the building itself is the main attraction.
Used to be a nicer mix of boutiques. Not as diverse anymore.
The 2003 film Party Monster, starring Macaulay Culkin & Seth Green, was based on party promoter Michael Alig's killing and dismemberment of Angel Melendez, a drug dealer at New York's Limelight Club.
Opened in November 1983 by owner Peter Gatien, the New York Limelight originally started as a disco & rock club. In Sept. 2003, it reopened under the name "Avalon"; closing its doors for good in 2007.
It's an interesting place to shop in.
caaa yooootest clothes ever
This place has changed. Used to be cute indie boutiques. Now it's one massive irritating clubwear store.
I wish the club was back. It was pretty awesome.
Head upstairs to the Linear Shop and check out the Ski Till I Die gear!
Sweets! Sugar rush!
A church turned into dance club, then turned into the Limelight Marketplace...Clothes and food...There's a secret pizza shop off to the back of the store!
My mom used to dance the night away here

Church -----> Nightclub -----> One stop shopping. Go in just to say you experienced it.
Find the Grimaldi's and Baci Gelato within. Makes for a great lunch while shopping!
In the 80s, it was one of the city's hottest clubs. In recent years it's been refashioned as a luxury shopping mall of sorts. Only in New York.
They hit the jackpot when they made this iconic space a unique, hip marketplace... Then they ruined it by turning it into another generic dept. store. What a shame.
This historic three-story church consists of more than 60 small, high-end shops which sell jewelry, clothing and organic goods.
Must eat the gelato - ferrero flavor!
Amazing.. shopping place, plus pizza store, plus gelato, plus prosciutto, plus plus plus... And plus the bar!! (they have a good deal today for jeans and shoes ;)
Ok for specialty items.
@kangol. Come in with a kangol hat and get 25% off a new hat.
This 25000-square-foot former eighties nightclub (and, before that, a church) was converted into a shopping emporium in May 2010. Check out the stained glass windows.
Look at the architecture and see how they nicely retrofitted a church
There are WAY too many salespeople on the floor here. 5 "hi can I help you?"s in 5 minutes is actually really annoying.
much better as a marketplace than a club, this place really shines as a marketplace with it's cute cafe, wine bar &boutique shops. Crossbar (attached) has a great brunch & lovely outdoor seating area
Layout is super bizarro. Follow the scent of cheese, keep the faith and you'll be rewarded with Grimaldi's.
No slices at Grimaldi's. At least pretend you're with someone else.
I remember going here years ago when it was a nightclub. Nice to see the original structure remains and the old stained glass is preserved.
When we were in college - this used to be a club! Now it's a fab set of shops. Check out the Hunter boots shop for hard to find sizes & colors and grab a bite at the Cross Bar.
how has the limelight turned into a *MALL*?!
Sit on the patio at CrossBar! It's gorgeous :)
Walk all the way to the back on the first floor to find great salads, sandwiches, cheese and gelato. All the perfect fixings for a picnic in Madison Square Park or a quick work respite at your desk.
Cool shopping experience. And some dope causal kicks.
Nice little shops!!
Come check out 50% off Hunter's leather goods
If only the walls of this old church can talk. I could right a book just from what went on in the ladies room. Ah, my youth!!!
Taste Italian chz today made in italy!!
The better shops are on the second floor: Japanese toys at Zakka, vintage jewelry and knick knacks from Old Hollywood, and free cookie samples from Ruby et Violette.
Weird place. Not in a good way. You get lost weaving around in here.
Check out Butterfly Bakeshop... Mention twitter or Facebook and get a free cookie!!!
Scoop up men's and women's perfumes from The Avery Perfumes, baubles and bangles from the Old Hollywood line of jewelry, or indulge in a mini-makeover from Face Stockholm.
