In 2011, tiny Fremont bested behemoths Ballard, Capitol Hill and Queen Anne to take home the inaugural Curbed Cup for Seattle's Best Neighborhood. In 2012, Fremont returned to the championship round only to feel the sting of defeat at the hands of Ballard. In 2013, Greenwood unseated Ballard to claim the title for itself. Last year, it was Columbia City who bested Georgetown to take the crown.
