We're down to the final four in the Curbed Cup, our annual award to the San Francisco neighborhood of the year. There will be one matchup today and tomorrow, with the polls left open for 24 hours. The final showdown for the prestigious fake trophy will begin Wednesday. Let the eliminations continue!
With a difference of 67 votes, NoPa has moved on to the Curbed Cup finals. Now, it's time to decide if Tenderloin deserves to move forward in the contest or if Bayview should take the crown. There are only 24 hours to vote, so let's get to it. Below, you will be able to see the original blurb written about the Tenderloin in this article:
The Tenderloin is traditionally one of the grittier neighborhoods in the city, but it's also one of the most happening areas in town. Last week, it narrowly beat out Pacific Heights for our award. Perhaps the fact that the TL has plenty of new restaurants, bars, and bakeries, and its popularity as a entertainment destination is ever-growing gave it the winning votes. This fall, we asked resident Erin Montoya to lead us on a People's Tour of the neighborhood, and she said the best kept secret about the district is the "incredible art galleries, new and old." Judging by the buzz around the Tenderloin, it's edgy charm is not much of a secret anymore.
Below, you will be able to see the original blurb written about Bayview in this article:
As one of our editors wrote a few months ago, "Prices have been rising in the Bayview, but it remains one of the few neighborhoods left in San Francisco where it is very possible to score a single-family home for under $1 million." That said, she was writing about a home that sold for $1.1M. There have been some new multi-unit housing developments in this neighborhood, but perhaps the most talked-about example is still under construction: Candlestick Park came down early in 2015, and there are currently hundreds of homes, a mall, and a hotel being constructed on the site.
The below poll will close at 2:30 p.m. PST on Wednesday, December 30.
