The Limelight in NYC Transforms into a Market

NYTimes.com details the transformation of The Limelight, a Church Turned Nightclub, into a Market.  The Limelight in New York opened in November 1983 and was one of NYC’s most famous nightclubs in the 80s through 90s.  This spring, it will reopen as the Limelight Marketplace housing 35 upscale boutiques and restaurants.  The $15 million renovation has made the interior much brighter but it still retains the maze-like feel that was a hallmark of the Limelight. Brands include Le Sportsac, Baci Gelato and the bootmaker Hunter will be opening stores in the Limelight Marketplace.

    Totally unnecessary.
    In a city full of shops and stores, the new Limelight market only serves to remind one of the once lovely club scene that used to flourish in it’s great halls. It’s a sad trip for anyone that remembers the old Limelight and it’s many great parties. Save yourself the pain and avoid that block. Maybe someday, it will be a club again.
