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

We asked which NYC 'hood was the most stylish and you answered: The West Village. The shopping corridor of Bleecker Street, the mostly residential side streets dotted with boutiques and designer shops, and the high-density of model residents—or suspiciously attractive normal people—helped the WV win the title. In its campaign for the honor, the neighborhood beat down Nolita and The Lower East Side before finally smashing Soho by a hair—an incredibly groomed hair—in the final round.

That's all for this edition of the Neighborhood Style Showdown; we'll see you next time and trust that you'll be doing your own stomping grounds justice by bringing it day in and day out.
