In the style of Shark Tank, three challengers vie to have their chosen neighborhood crowned as the #KingOfSummer in the Summer City Challenge.
James Cook, Arielle Einhorn and Taylor Coyne each compete for the favor of judge Julia Georgules.
The three pretenders to the throne:
  • 798 Arts District in Beijing, China is a collection of art galleries, boutiques  bars, cafes and restaurants in a former factory complex designed by East German architects in the 1950s
  • Downtown LA's Arts District is a formerly industrial neighborhood which now is home to many artists and galleries
  • Chicago's Fulton Market district is the center of gravity for the city's explosive foodie scene
