    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.

    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.

    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.

    Layout is super bizarro. Follow the scent of cheese, keep the faith and you'll be rewarded with Grimaldi's.

    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

    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.
