Dearest readers of Curbed Atlanta: We're nearing the end of another year. While 2012 saw much of Hotlanta brushing the last ice cubes off its real estate values, positive news abounded. Good things happened. Like the Eastside Trail and its groundswell of patronage. Like local restaurants getting national nods. And we're betting a good many more of them occurred on the micro-scale ... on your street, in your neighborhood, in our town. In the spirit of the season (and by "season," obviously we mean the season where the media insists on quantifying a year's worth of people, places and things into "Best Of" lists), we're preparing to award the second-annual Curbed Cup (Atlanta edition) to the city's best neighborhood. Inman Park bested Midtown West in the finals last year, and glory ensued. The criteria are amorphous, determined largely by our readers. But think about neighborhoods where things are happening; places becoming more lively or beautiful; areas of town begging you to ditch your current home and move there. Beginning today, we are accepting submissions for your Neighborhood of the Year 2012. Eventually we'll put the winners in a bracket-style competition against each other for you to vote on. Send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or make your nomination in the Comments section of this post. Come on Atlanta, make your opinions known. You can do this. Bragging rights for the next 12 months are at stake!
