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 featured a Cape vs. Vineyard throw down, with Wellfleet taking the win from Oak Bluffs. To recap, so far, Ptown, Nantucket and Wellfleet are in the running. Today, for our final heat in the first round, we've got a big money Cape competition. In one corner, representing the Mid-Cape, the village of Osterville. In the other corner, the Lower Cape's town of Chatham. So Curbed readers, which place with pricey real estate and notable summer residents 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.
