Situated in the former Chelsea church-turned-nightclub, now stands the shopping mecca known as the Limelight Marketplace. I'd been anticipating it's debut since I first read about the project on New York Magazine's blog, "The Cut." Immediately upon entering, I felt flustered and in need of a handheld map to help me navigate all of the many nooks. Although the shopping market is only three floors, it's not just simple steps up a staircase; each staircase leads you to a different alcove, secluded from any other part of the floor-- very poorly laid out!
I did, however, manage to find a few goodies. On the first floor sat Wanna Hava Cookie, a store devoted to all things whoopie pie including flavors like red velvet. Next stop was Butterfly Bakery which not so ironically sells baked goods decked in butterflies. The photos don't do it justice but the butterflies are actually quite beautiful, designed with multi-colored marbles and polka-dots.
