Step Into The Limelight


We discovered a real gem this past week in New York City. Limelight Marketplace at 656 6th Avenue near West 20th Street is a must visit if you love independent boutique-like shops and interesting architecture. The Marketplace has something for everyone including restaurants, bakeries and retail shops all nestled in a renovated 1840s church complete with gorgeous stained glass windows and Gothic limestone columns and arches.

One of our favorite places in Limelight was the Sweet Room where we found a wonderful variety of petite shops selling chocolates, brownies, cupcakes, cakes and even whoopie pies. There was also a great little gourmet market of fresh breads, cheeses, pastas, spices and coffees. We enjoyed the fabulous crafty hatters, shoes, jewelry, cosmetics, furniture and clothing boutiques. All this shopping exploration definitely brought out the foodie in us so we stopped at The Wine Bar for a yummy lunch. Highly recommended for delicious food at nice prices.

Visit Limelight Marketplace the next time you are in Manhattan. Its a delightful place to spend an afternoon shopping, eating and enjoying beautiful architecture.
