The greater Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago had a year that it will always remember. The Chicago Cubs’ historic World Series run had North Siders flocking to the Wrigleyville area for much of the autumn while the team took on the Giants, Dodgers, and Indians to win it all. Lakeview is one of the quintessential North Side neighborhoods and so far the area is looking like it could make it all the way to the Curbed Cup finals. Can Lakeview achieve the success of its Cubbies and claim yet another championship in 2016? If Lakeview is able to overcome the challenge from Lincoln Square, it’ll move on to face either Uptown or Woodlawn for a chance to win it all.
Lincoln Square has proved to be a very formidable entry in this year’s Curbed Cup. In the first round, Lincoln Square easily knocked out last year’s winning Pullman. The defeat was a major upset as the last place seed defeated the first place. Lincoln Square then went on to best the popular Andersonville neighborhood in a very, very close match. The residents of Lincoln Square are rallying around the neighborhood’s Curbed Cup run, but will there be enough momentum to beat the heavyweight Lakeview? No matter the result, this will be one to keep an eye on.
But the final decision is up to you: vote now for which neighborhood you think should advance to the finals.
