Ladies and gentlemen, these are your eight contenders for the Curbed Cup, an award to determine neighborhood of the year in the Detroit Metro Area! Later today we'll open the voting to eliminate the losers in our bracket-style tourney for this fake award. Do note: if you are pissed your hood did not make the cut that's really too bad. We asked for nominations and you just did not pipe up fast enough. Make a resolution for 2012 to be more participatory with your local blogs.
