Call for nominations: the 2016 Curbed Cup

Help us pick the year’s No. 1 neighborhood!

‘Tis that time of year: Curbed Boston’s annual contest to pick the No. 1 neighborhood in all of Greater Boston. Yes, the 2016 Curbed Cup is almost here!

Voting will start shortly. In the meantime, we want your help in building a bracket of 16 contenders.

Past Curbed Cup winners have included Dorchester and South Boston as well as last year’s champ, Somerville’s Assembly Row.

Who deserves to win this year?

A few things to consider: Which neighborhoods have seen the most change, including through construction and streetscape alterations? Which ones have figured prominently in the meta-stories of 2016, such as debates over development and the direction of the region? Which are just plain cooler/more interesting now than on Jan. 1, 2016?

Nominate neighborhoods in the comments section below or through Facebook or Twitter. We will also handle with the utmost discretion emailed nominations through

Let the debate begin!
