Curbed cup 1st round: Pioneer Square (8) v Fremont (9)

The arts scene remains resilient, too—it’s not just legacy galleries here, but new ones, like Party Hat. (Almost helps make up for the demise of 619 Western.)

    Curbed cup 1st round: Pioneer Square (8) v Fremont (9)
    Seattle's oldest neighborhood has a lot going on: It's traditionally Seattle's arts district, home of the First Thursday Art Walk and perhaps the highest concentration of galleries in the city. Its artsy rep, exposed-brick lofts, and proximity downtown makes it a popular living destination.
