Curbed is a popular American real-estate blog network founded by Lockhart Steele.[1][2] As of 2014 there are area-specific editions for New York City, the Hamptons, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Seattle, Cape Cod, Vancouver, Toronto, and North American ski towns.[3] There's also a National site, founded in 2010, that Steele once described as "Architectural Digest after a three-martini lunch.” The site hosts an annual contest, the Curbed Cup, to pick the best neighborhood in each city.[4]

The Curbed Network also includes dining website Eater and fashion website Racked.[5]

On November 10, 2013, The New York Times reported that Vox Media had purchased the Curbed Network.[6] The paper reported that the cash-and-stock deal was worth between $20 and $30 million.[6]
