The Curbed Cup, Curbed Seattle annual Neighborhood of the Year tournament, continues today (get caught up on 1st round results here). This week we're down to the Elite Eight. Each day we'll put one match-up to a vote, with results reviewed on Friday. Polls are open for 24 hours, starting now!
Our next face-off is between downtown Seattle and North Seattle.

Neighborhood: 2-seed Capitol Hill
How'd They Get Here: Survived a scare from Columbia City in the first round.
Why They Deserve To Win: The Curbed Cup has been a cruel mistress to Cap Hill over the years. The top seed in both previous incarnations, it lost in the finals in 2011 and got upset in the first-round last year. So we've moved it down to the No. 2 seed thinking maybe that'll help them out. Not that they need help. Cap Hill remains one of Seattle's most vibrant epicenters for culture, real estate, construction, restaurants and rooftop music videos. If you hear about something cool happening in Seattle, there's a 37% chance it's happening here.
Neighborhood: 7-seed Greenwood
How'd They Get Here: Held off Georgetown in the first-round.
Why They Deserve To Win: This North Seattle neighborhood is among the most sought-out by homebuyers. It's been named among the best in Seattle, to boot. And even now, there are projects ready to go trying to make it even more vital. We're constantly finding interesting homes in the area, including ones perfect for NSA spies.
So, which neighborhood moves on to the Final Four?
