Atwater Village is LA's 2012 Neighborhood of the Year

New, 80 comments

Congratulations to Atwater Village, the winner of the 2012 Curbed Cup for LA's Neighborhood of the Year! The river-adjacent brunch zone, which this year got to work on less parking and more parks, was seeded low in the pack (at 11), but obviously just wanted it more--it beat out favorites Santa Monica, Historic Core, Hollywood, and finally Silver Lake to nab the title. (Sidenote: does this mean Silver Lake is cool again?) There is talk of a parade to celebrate the win; for grand marshal, we recommend either new resident/actor/Scientologist Giovanni Ribisi or a particularly good pain au chocolat from Proof.
