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…Pioneer Square, the winner with over triple the votes of Ravenna.
Pioneer Square, just look at the name. This place has been here since the pioneers. That isn't some sappy label slapped on by a developer. It survived the Great Seattle Fire. It's watched the waterfront get filled in and redefined. Now, it's surviving Bertha; while being home to great food and music. Sports fans, weigh in for one of the few neighborhoods within walking distance of the professional stadiums.

In this corner…Columbia City, another winner with over triple the votes of its opponent, Queen Anne; and one of the highest vote counts.
Seattle is known for its mix of cultures, but few places in the nation are as diverse as Columbia City. It's also one of the greenest communities in the country. That's an impressive accomplishment considering that it's in the Evergreen State. Diverse, green, and affordable - an impressive combination.
So, which neighborhood moves on to the Final Four?
