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…South Lake Union, which bested Wallingford and Green Lake to get here.
Not long ago the only reason to go to South Lake Union was to either visit the boats or drive through to another part of the city. Now, corporations have big plans for the space. Brain scientists are moving in. How geeky cool is that? The restaurants on the water have always been attractive, and if you live there, you don't need a car to reach anything in the city.
In the other corner…Georgetown, which upset No. 1 seed Ballard and No. 8 seed Fremont to get here.
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.
So, which neighborhood moves on to the Championship?
