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. Polls will be open for 24 hours so you can cast your vote as to which ones should advance.

(5) Downtown

The downtown area is popping to say the least after sliding past Little Haiti in Round 1.

Art Miami moved to the old Miami Herald site, city streets are being considered for a Formula One race, the Miami Police Department is looking at a new state-of-the-art headquarters, Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum is rocketing up as the bustling apartment/condo seen continues to push westward, and the Frost Museum of Science finally opened its doors.

(13) Sunset Harbour

Sunset Harbour slipped past No. 4 Surfside in the opening round by a mere five-vote margin.

Home to some of South Beach’s most popular restaurants—Lucali, Pubbelly, and Naiyara, to name a few—the small and very walkable neighborhood fell to downtown Miami a year ago. Among its highlights is a marina where you can catch beautiful sunsets.
