Half the field has already been eliminated in the Curbed Cup, our annual award to the Miami neighborhood of the year. This week we'll have one matchup apiece on Monday and Tuesday—with the polls left open for 24 hours—and by Wednesday only two contenders will be left vying for the prestigious fake trophy. Let the eliminations continue!
Last week's Curbed Cup was full of excitement, with the MiMo District beating out Downtown, despite way more happening Downtown than in comparatively sleepy MiMo. But the MiMo Historic District, which is the spine of Miami's Upper East Side, it is, winning twice the votes, with one commenter commenting that "In terms of which neighborhood truly embraces its past and uses it as a way to guide and integrate the future, MiMo has it by a landslide." Meanwhile, Coral Gables just as easily trumped South Beach, with one commenter calling it "the most elegant and livable area in Miami." And the Gables certainly has a lot going for it. Beautiful buildings. Beautiful streets. Hell, beautiful everything.
