The Curbed Cup is Coming! Name the Best Neighborhood of 2010!

New, 66 comments

Ever since the dawn of civilization, roughly 2004, Curbed readers have made it a year-end tradition to decide on the New York City neighborhood of the year. This award is called the Curbed Cup, and since this year's edition is still being forged by our goldsmith, please enjoy the artist's depiction of this gorgeous fake trophy seen at right. Dazzling! It's nearly voting time, but before the tournament kicks off and a winner can be declared, we need your help.

This year the Curbed Cup will return to its bracket-style, 16-neighborhood format, and the selection committee needs input before the seeding is set. Think a certain neighborhood should make the big dance? Tell us why! The best arguments will be used to help sway fellow Curbed Cup voters once the contest kicks off. You can state your case in the comments on this post, or e-mail us your nominations. What makes a neighborhood Curbed Cup worthy? It's a nabe that saw the most happen in the realms of development, new restaurants and retail, and the ineffable but real sense of where the action was in the past 12 months. Here are the previous Curbed Cup winners:

2009: Williamsburg
2008: Madison Square Park
2007: Long Island City
2006: West Harlem
2005: Prospect Heights
2004: Fort Greene

No Cinderella is too small, so nominate now!
