Curbed Cup First Round: (4) Queen Anne vs. (13) Green Lake

New, 4 comments

The Curbed Cup, Curbed Seattle annual Neighborhood of the Year tournament, begins today. The deserving candidates will be presented in two match-ups per day through the week, with results reviewed on Friday. Polls are open for 24 hours, starting now!

Our first match-up of the day pits two a very large neighborhood and a very small neighborhood head-to-head.

In this corner…Queen Anne. Sure, when you say Queen Anne, that cover's a lot of ground. Upper Queen Anne? East Queen Anne? North Queen Anne? We're just gonna call it Queen Anne and just celebrate it as a whole. Not just a place where all the families live, we've spotted many awesome residences in these parts. And if you want to live in a place that used to be a school, this is basically your hot spot. Of course, not everyone's on board with the development there but it does seem like everyone sure does want to live there.

In the other corner…Green Lake. The center of North Seattle isn't just a great place to be when the big earthquake hits. It seems to be an eco-friendly construction haven, not to mention a burgeoning haven for top-notch restaurants. Do a lap around the lake and you're bound to find something for you.

So, which neighborhood moves on to the Elite Eight?
