Ed. Note — We noticed some voting irregularities in the finals poll. Those irregularities have since been corrected.
After two weeks of voting, two neighborhoods have made it to the final round, but only can win it all. Representing the North Side, the Lakeview neighborhood has cruised its way through the first three rounds of voting, defeating River North, Bridgeport, and Lincoln Square along the way. And for the South Side, the Woodlawn neighborhood has proved to be quite a might contender having knocked out The Loop, the West Loop, and the illustrious Uptown neighborhood.
Lakeview boasts the Southport Corridor, Wrigley Field, and Boystown, however, Woodlawn should not be discounted. The South Side neighborhood has been witnessing a flood of new investment, including the upcoming Obama Presidential Center which is expected to cost anywhere between $500 million to $1 billion.
This could be anyones’ match, but it’s up to you to decide on which neighborhood will reign supreme. Polls will be open until January 2, so cast your vote—and start getting the word out for the neighborhood that you want to win. May the best neighborhood win!
