'Tis nearly the end of the year and that means one thing: time to pick the best neighborhood in the Greater Boston region. That's right, dear reader: the Curbed Cup awaits one vaunted vote-getter in our annual contest. For those unfamiliar, it's similar to a March Madness bracket, with 16 neighborhoods or enclaves squaring off in reader polls, round by round, until one emerges triumphant. We want you to help pick that bracket.
Simply drop your nominations in the comments section of this post or email them to us on the always-discreet Curbed Boston Tipline. Or! Hit us up on social at Facebook and Twitter. A couple of notes: We don't want just the names, but the reasons for why the neighborhood should be in the running for the Curbed Cup. What made it special this year? Which developments are sprouting there that people should heed? Which trends are unfolding? Why is your nominee better right now than the next guy's or gal's? And, also, we will accept neighborhoods within neighborhoods. So perhaps Savin Hill instead of simply Dorchester. Or Cambridgeport instead of just Cambridge. You dig? Here are the past winners, all of which are eligible this year as well:
2013: East Boston
2012: South Boston
2011: the South End
Which neighborhood will claim the year's ultimate honor? Stay tuned.
