Curbed Cup Lightning Round: Downtown vs. Hamtramck

It’s on

The Curbed Cup is our annual award for the neighborhood of the year. We’re starting with 16 neighborhoods (with some close ones combined), and we’ll vote over the next few weeks until we’re down to one. Week one had a few upsets; how will week two turn out? Polls are open for 24 two hours. Let the voting commence!


We’re well into the Elite Eight here at the Curbed Cup, and competition is fierce. We saw a tie during the first round last week, and here we are with another.

It’s time to vote again between Downtown and Hamtramck.

Of course, many people would argue that neither should be in the Curbed Cup. Downtown is, well, downtown, and not often seen the same way as other neighborhoods. And Hamtramck, as we pointed out and we know, is a city within a city. But it is part of Detroit and we believe that both of these options should be considered for the Curbed Cup. For our write-ups on both neighborhoods, check here.

Which one will make it to the Final Four and go up against New Center? Your vote counts! Voting is open until 4 p.m.
