The Curbed Cup, Curbed Seattle annual Neighborhood of the Year tournament, continues today (get caught up on all the results here). This week we're at the Final Four. Both match-ups will be put to a vote today and the results will reviewed on Tuesday. Polls are open for 24 hours, starting now!
In one corner…defending Curbed Cup champion Greenwood, which defeated U-District and Capitol Hill to get here.
Greenwood's grown as every other neighborhood gets attention. Quiet streets, relatively. Funky, but useful shops. And some transitional housing which is affordable or gentrified depending on your needs and resources. The major events go elsewhere. Great!

In the other corner…Columbia City, which bested iconic Seattle neighborhoods Queen Anne and Pioneer Square to advance here.
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?
