+ from an altar of disco to an altar of shopping.

The eyesore that the abandoned Church building located on the corner of Sixth Avenue and 20th Street is about to get a new lease on life (no pun intended) as the owners of the space are going to turn this edifice into a shopping bazaar, reminiscent of the Holiday Market that is held inside Grand Central Terminal. The building has undergone a bizarre reincarnation from an Episcopal Church, to a famous gay nightclub named The Limelight (which was featured in the film Party Monster, and would lead to the rise of the famed "Club Kids",) to a regular nightclub named Avalon that shut down in 2007. The question is, how well is this experiment in retail going to work?
