Inside the Limelight Marketplace


I had the opportunity to check out the little party tonight for the Limelight Marketplace which will be opening tomorrow (well later today, I'm up late) at 2 p.m.  The selection is quite selective and most are upscale but there are some regular stores like Havaianas and It'Sugar.  I can't believe that this is the church/nightclub/concert venue that most NYers can remember venturing into at some point or another.  Upon entering it feels like you are walking into Henri Bendel.  It's very done up and clean cut.  There is also a food wing that has cupcakes, cakes, tea, ice cream and more.  I think this would make a good tourist attraction if they do somehow end up on 20th Street.  

My absolute favorite store in the Marketplace is the Old Hollywood store.  It's way cooler than their closet-sized Greenpoint store.  While that location does have its own charm, the display for the Limelight store was pretty amazing. Everything is set up and organized to make its own little scene behind the glass.  You'll see by looking at the pictures.  It was unlike any of the other stores there.

Check out more photos of the Marketplace.  If you like what you see, definitely make a visit for it's grand opening weekend.  I don't think I will be coming back unless I plan on buying some jewelry from Old Hollywood of course.  I am too lazy to go to Greenpoint.
