The annual Curbed Cup kicks off over the bridge this week with eight enclaves 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 Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket 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!
Meanwhile, the Outer Cape's Truro offered up a plastic bag ban proposal, its own preposterously pricey pad, gorgeous baths, stunning and artsy spreads, our favorite trap sheds on the beach, and some wicked weird listing photos, of course.
So Curbed readers, which town should advance? Submit your vote for the locale you think deserves to move on to the next round, toward 'hood of the year bragging rights and the faux trophy.
