Welcome back to Neighborhood Style Showdown, our quest to determine New York City's most stylish neighborhood.

Time for round two, match two of our quest to find the most stylish 'hood in the city. Soho clobbered the Meatpacking District in their match-up; Tribeca style-squashed the Upper East Side. Now the shopping district and one of Manhattan's priciest ZIP codes go head-to-head to determine who is more stylish. Soho benefits from storefronts by just about every big name in the fashion game—and all the stylish folks who drop by—while Tribeca is home to major icons like Blue Ivy (and her parents).
Whoever wins will face off against the West Village in the third and final round over the weekend.
Update: And the winner is Soho! They'll go on to face-off with the West Village in the final round.
