    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.

    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.

    Limelight is not what Limelight was in the 1990s. It was a hugely popular nightclub in the former Episcopalian church. It was where I DJ'd for club kids, ravers, and goths regularly. #PorcelainTheBook Read more

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Recommend your tourist visits to come shop here! They will be impressed with having very chic boutiques inside of a church looking building!

    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.

    Gorgeous space filled with unique treats! The club layout is still somewhat intact! my girl & I enjoyed reminiscing. A satisfying combo of old & new.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This historic three-story church consists of more than 60 small, high-end shops which sell jewelry, clothing and organic goods.

    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 remember going here years ago when it was a nightclub. Nice to see the original structure remains and the old stained glass is preserved.

    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...

    Having transformed from a church to a club to a mall, the building itself is the main attraction.

    Get the Bruce Burger or the Lobster Roll at LimeLight Grill. They are TASTEY! Great place to sit outside and eat on a nice day.

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