Maplewood, you’re a winner!

Maplewood is one of eight New Jersey towns to emerge victorious in the first round of New Jersey Monthly’s first-ever Downtown Showdown, presented by Kings Food Markets.

In the first round in which 16 teams vied for the eight spots in round 2, Maplewood beat out Summit.

In round 2, our Essex County Eden is up against the ivy-covered prestige and downtown shopping of Mercer County’s Princeton.

To ensure that Maplewood Avenue triumphs over Nassau Street, vote here. There’s only one vote per person per round.

The four winners of this round will face off starting Tuesday, September 15. The championship round starts the following Tuesday, September 22, with the ultimate winning downtown to be named by NJ Monthly on September 29.

Besides Maplewood and Princeton, other towns that made it through round 1 are: Hoboken, Montclair, Morristown, Red Bank, Somerville and Cape May. Besides Summit, the eliminated towns include: Jersey City, Westfield, Ridgewood, Asbury Park, Collingswood, Haddonfield and Lambertville.
