The Curbed Cup, Curbed Chicago's annual Neighborhood of the Year tournament, enters the quarterfinals (2nd round) today. The deserving candidates will be presented in one match-up per day through the week, with results reviewed on Friday. Polls are open for 24 hours, starting now!
First round winners Logan Square and West Loop just barely slipped through to the quarterfinals. But this isn't Florida— a winner is a winner. By unseating the venerable first-seeded South Loop, West Loop has inherited its draw. Will the giant-killing coalition remain intact? Will high-profile development trump a steady churn? Generally held to different expectations, Logan and West Loop have a lock on the city's innovative new restaurants. And they both have an art scene. Are they really so different? This is new territory for the Curbed Cup. Which 'hood will make its first trip to the final four?
