The Curbed Cup, our annual award for Miami’s neighborhood of the year, is kicking off with 16 neighborhoods vying for the prestigious (fake) trophy. We’ll reveal each of the neighborhoods this week, and polls will be open for 24 hours so you can cast your vote as to which ones should advance. Let the eliminations commence!
The results for the first round are in!
Our only upset was a big one: No. 4 Surfside fell to No. 13 Sunset Harbour by a mere 5-point margin.
A top-four seed proved to be too much for last year’s runner-up to handle as it would appear the small neighborhood in Miami Beach performs better as the underdog. Sunset Harbour, on the other hand, has returned to Curbed Cup relevance after losing in Round 1 last year and winning the whole tournament in 2013.
All other favored neighborhoods advanced and did so with relative ease. The second round begins Monday with an intriguing matchup of neighbors: No. 8 Edgewater takes on No. 1 Wynwood.
