The semi-finals in our annual Neighborhood of the Year contest begin right now. The first duel features two popular intown 'nabes known for festivals and general joie de vivre. Like last year, Old Fourth Ward (the top seed and reigning champ) has been on a warpath toward the Curbed Cup's sacred fake trophy. Most recently, O4W bested Candler Park — but by a slim 52.6 percent margin. Grant Park, meanwhile, went toe-to-toe with neighbor Cabbagetown and emerged the victor, with 60 percent of 819 votes. Ready, set — eliminate!
