Round I of the BS Neighborhood Derby 2009 has officially been decided, and the final two battles went out with a bang. In all, 866 votes were cast in the final two races, which represent the closest competitions to date. New Albany beat out Beechmont-South Louisville after a last minute rally and West Louisville-Russell-Park Hill-California narrowly won over Jeffersonville-Clarksville with a slim 17-vote margin.
Both match-ups were running a dead-heat up through the noon hour today and voting was intense. Congratulations go to all the neighborhoods for the support they brought in and the numbers to back it up. With the closing of the polls this afternoon, we now have eight neighborhoods/neighborhood groups battling for the BS Crown of Neighborhood of the Year, or whatever we decide to call it in the end (suggestions welcome).
Today we’re starting Round II competitions with a few neighborhood titans. The Highlands will square off against Old Louisville and Downtown will again be battling its neighbors Butchertown-NuLu-East Market Street Corridor. All four won convincingly in Round I, but as the stakes grow, so does the difficulty. Voting will be open for two days, so vote in both races below and spread the word.
