Curbed Cup Round 1, Heat 3: Nantucket vs. Hyannis

The second 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 commence!

We kicked off Curbed Cup voting with two Martha's Vineyard vs. Cape Cod battles in which Aquinnah and Provincetown took top slots. In today's heat, yet another island vs. Cape face off. Nantucket started off the year with a blockbuster $20 million home sale. Fittingly, the second priciest sale of the year happened in December, a rather perfect bookend for the Gray Lady. Meanwhile, Hyannis expanded its role as the Cape's transportation hub with the awesomely successful CapeFLYER seasonal rail service and got dumped by Taylor Swift. So Curbed readers, which town should advance? 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.
