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!
The Village Voice voted this Most Unusual Use of an Old Nightlife Space in our Best Of New York Poll!
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.
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.
fancy gelato place (i can't remember the name of it now); just right for those hot, hot, hot summer days when you stroll in for the A/C
They did as great job turning into a market. Absolutely gorgeous space!
Cool shopping experience. And some dope causal kicks.
This historic three-story church consists of more than 60 small, high-end shops which sell jewelry, clothing and organic goods.
how has the limelight turned into a *MALL*?!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie-pie. Mmmmmmmmm
This place is surreal! Be warned- sweets galore. Bouncers have been replaced with uniformed security.
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.
My mom used to dance the night away here
This is the best place to do one stop shopping for unique presents: candy, pastries, jewelry, beauty, and wellies all made by interesting designers.
I wish the club was back. It was pretty awesome.
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!
BROCADE HOME is located on Level 2 of The Limelight!
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.
Gorgeous space filled with unique treats! The club layout is still somewhat intact! my girl & I enjoyed reminiscing. A satisfying combo of old & new.
Get the Falafel chips from Jezalin's!
A great addition for NYC foodies and shoppers.
strangest conversion of a church into a high end pop up store
Make sure to check out Brocade home gallery on 3rd floor. Amazing pillow covers and designs. My new inspiration.
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.
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.
Head upstairs to the Linear Shop and check out the Ski Till I Die gear!
Sweets! Sugar rush!

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!

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.
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.
