Curbed is an American real-estate blog network founded by Lockhart Steele.[2][3] As of 2016 there are area-specific editions for Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, the Hamptons, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington, D.C., and North American ski towns.[4] 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.[5]

The Curbed Network also includes dining website Eater and fashion website Racked.[6]

On November 10, 2013, The New York Times reported that Vox Media had purchased the Curbed Network.[7] The paper reported that the cash-and-stock deal was worth between $20 million and $30 million.[7]
