Limelight Marketplace Set to Open April 29

Limelight Marketplace

Originally an Episcopalian church, the building on the corner of Sixth Avenue and 20th Street has been many things. Some of us remember it as the Limelight (those of us who were clubbing in the 80’s), but more recently, this building will be host to the “Limelight Marketplace”.

The three-story, 25,000-square-foot space will house boutiques, shops, restaurants and tons of food options (Hello.. Cupcake Stop and Brooklyn’s famous Grimaldi’s pizza!).

After a $15 million renovation, the space is officially set to open on April 29th on the Avenue of the Americas in Chelsea. For more information, check out their website.
