The first annual Curbed Cup kicks off over the bridge this week. Eight enclaves are vying for the very prestigious faux trophy and bragging rights as the Cape and Islands Best Neighborhood of the Year. We're including towns and villages in our Cape & Islands definition of a neighborhood, rounding up, if you will. That said, we'll have one match-up per day, with polls staying open for 24 hours. Let the eliminations continue!
Yesterday, we kicked off Curbed Cup voting with two of the Cape's most popular destinations - Provincetown and Hyannis. Or so we thought. Apparently, Hyannis is not nearly as popular with Curbed readers as it is with tourists. Today, we're headed to the islands for, hopefully, a closer competition. In one corner, Martha's Vineyard Edgartown. In the other corner, the one and only Nantucket. So Curbed readers, which former whaling town do you prefer? Submit your click for the locale you think deserves to move on to the next round, toward 'hood of the year bragging rights and the faux trophy.
