Limelight Marketplace 2010-2011
The Limelight in New York was a club where so many wild times and so many drugs have been consumed. The club officially went into permanent rehab and closed its doors several years ago. Disgustingly, it became the Limelight Marketplace, a high end shopping mall in 2010. Most people’s K-Holes lasted longer than the Limelight Marketplace and less than 1 year after opening, it has suffered a fatal overdose. It will apparently become a Barney’s New York. Just what the city needs – more overpriced clothing. I’m not sure what kind of crack these people are smoking, but when you put a shopping center in the site of a former club, you shouldn’t expect much.

The Limelight. Former Club. Now a Shopping Mall.
The Limelight on 6th Avenue and 20th Street in New York is a converted church that used to be one of the hottest clubs in New York. Almost every legendary story of clubkids and crackheads partying until the dawn in New York took place at this space and after sitting vacant for a few years, it has now become a shopping mall! I only had the chance to dance at the Limelight once and I remember one room was full of queens dancing at Madonna night and the next room was Gangsta Rap night. In between the rooms was a fortune teller. It was a night to remember. RIP Old New York and Viva La Consumerism!
