whoa, I almost forgot to announce this. anyone remember the limelight disco from the 80's/90's? the famed nightclub was housed in a former gothic-style episcopal church on 6th ave. at 20th. (as was the trend of running discos in churches) but had been closed down for some time. I have a regular appointment right around the corner from there and had only peeked in the building during one of their frequent basement sample sales. (and had no clue it was the former limelight) well lo and behold, one of my fave brooklyn shop owners is opening a manhattan outpost in the soon-to-open limelight marketplace. old hollywood will be throwing its opening party at limelight tomorrow night, 7-10 p.m.
this is a great opportunity to see tiffany porter's talent for creating her vintage-nostalgic magic in its full glory. she's been spending countless hours getting the shop ready, so come on down if you have a chance.
47 w. 20th st. @ 6th ave.
