Every year Curbed Los Angeles takes submissions for their Los Angeles Neighborhood of the Year award. As we all know Leimert Park is one of the most up and coming areas of Los Angeles and this is our chance to share our neighborhood pride with a huge audience. From Curbed: "The Curbed Cup is a bracket-style, 16-neighborhood tournament, and we're open to your nominations for which neighborhoods to include...tell us why your nabe of choice was the most happening in terms of development, new restaurants and retail, and general goings-on in 2012." Add your nomination as soon as possible for Leimert Park by emailing la@curbed.com or adding your five cents to the comments section of this Curbed blog post. Please share and let's get some excitement going for what we already know is the best neighborhood in LA!
