On Monday, voting will begin to determine the Los Angeles Neighborhood of the Year in the 2015 Curbed Cup. But before we can begin, we need your input on which neighborhoods were the biggest movers and shakers of 2015. Which neighborhood saw the most exciting action this year? Who had the best new buildings, parks, bikeification, restaurants, and shops? Where's your favorite new place to visit on a Saturday? We're not looking for LA's best neighborhood; we're looking for the neighborhood that had the most fascinating 2015.
The Curbed Cup is a bracket-style, 16-neighborhood tournament, and your nominations will help decide which neighborhoods make the Sweet 16. Put 'em in the comments of this post or on Facebook, or email 'em our way—tell us why your neighborhood of choice deserves a spot in the tourney. Any neighborhood or city in greater LA is eligible; Downtown sub-hoods (e.g. Little Tokyo) should be nominated individually.
Here are the past tournament winners, for the curious:
2012: Atwater Village
2011: Historic Core
2009: Culver City
2008: Historic Core
