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 two match-ups to a vote, with results reviewed on Wednesday. Polls are open for 24 hours, starting now!
In one corner…Georgetown, the winner of the greatest upset over #1 seeded Ballard. Georgetown proved what happens when you get out the vote!
It was its own city for a while, so it has its own character, just like every Seattle neighborhood. It is a classic case of a place remaking itself from industrial to urban to entrepreneurial. With beer, too! Oops. That's gone. Georgetown reinvents itself again.

In this corner…Fremont, the winner of a tight race with the Central District.
The 2011 Curbed Cup champions, Fremont is a tiny neighborhood full of big ideas. North Fremont has blossomed into a tiny epicenter of food and fun. Fremont Proper is still the Center of the Universe as we know it. Where else do you find visitors like statues of Lenin, old rockets, and residents like Rapunzel hanging out on the bridge? Oh yeah, and the Troll. Don't forget the troll.
So, which neighborhood moves on to the Final Four?
