Thanks to my friend Lili I discovered in NY the Limelight Marketplace. At first I thought it was a church typical of the Gothic style present everywhere in NY but my friend told me actually that it was a former club that was a church built in the late 1800's.
Outside view of the marketplace and the same side showing the existing stained glass windows
Inside the building the created levels where you can find about 60 different retailers that go from bakery and sweets shops to jewelry and shoes all the way to housewares. The original architecture with vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows was preserved and restored into it's original state or given a new "identity".
Interior views from the first and second floors
Views of rosette window and the tea room for Marie Belle chocolates
I loved the details all over the place that makes this place a new destination in my places to visit when in NY... but my advice is to take your time because there is a lot to do, a lot so see and a lot to experience in this sanctuary.

How cool! I've been wanting to go. I actually used to go to the Limelight all the time back in the 80s and 90s. My Dad actually took me there back in 1986 when I was 14 years old! I looked older for my age... I thought it was the coolest thing in the world and that I was going to meet someone famous. Like someone from Duran Duran. LOL. Then I used to go in college all the time. I have to check this out now. These photos are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
How cool that it now has shops. That will prevent the building from being pulled downReplyDelete
