Last week, we polled readers, inviting folks to vote on whether something is Uptown or not.
For this very scientific survey, we included images from Google Street, our story archives, Getty images, and a few from my Instagram account. Below are the fascinating results, from the biggest "yeahs" to the lowest "nays." Disclaimer: Yes, I understand that the inconsistent number of voters on each image also impacts ranking, but unlike varying definitions of Uptown, we're trying to keep it simple here.
Starting with the winner: Behold! Williams Peanut Bar is the most Uptown of all the images presented. When you think of "Uptown," of all the choices we gave you, this is it. The people have spoken.
