It’s been an eventful first week for the Curbed Cup 2016. Some familiar, trendy neighborhoods made the cut, while a few dark horses overthrew some favorites. Let’s recap the (fake) action.
The closest vote came in our first matchup between #1 seed Lafayette Park and #16 Palmer Woods. The big fancy mansions beat out the midcentury modern co-ops by just a few votes (more specifically 6 votes) to move on to the next round.
The next upset? Everyone loves Corktown, right? Not so fast said East English Village. The eastside neighborhood rallied to upset Detroit’s oldest neighborhood with 72% of the vote.
What can we expect from the Elite Eight next week?
These should be some pretty good match ups. Palmer Woods and Boston Edison will be a face off between some of the most beautiful old mansions in the city. Sherwood Forest and East English Village both had strong neighborhood support in their match ups this week. The University District and Downtown are as different as can be. Will the Villages or Midtown get more support? Voting starts up again on Monday.
