In the Limelight

Limelight Marketplace opened in early May 2010 on the corner of 20th Street at 6th Avenue in New York. Labeled as New York’s “Festival of Shops”, the space is a celebration of old and new. Built in 1844, the building is a deconsecrated Gothic Revival brownstone, the former Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion.

The three floors  of coffee shops, stores, and restaurants include MariBelle Chocolates, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, Caswell-Massey, Brocade Home, Havaianas, and Hunter Boots.

With it’s soaring arches, grand windows, and revived spirit, you have to love and respect this adaptive reuse and preservation of history!

    I have fond memories of the Limelight when it was a nightclub. This is an amazing transformation, shedding the nightshade and revealing the beautiful cathedral architecture! Can’t wait to visit during daylight hours.
