Comments about UncommonGoods Neighborwoods:

The design is very clean and detailed nicely. Love the fresh smell of the cedar wood. My only wish is for the price, maybe it can be a little bit bigger. I would also recommend improved packaging as mine came with a smashed in corner and part of the wood corner detail flaked off.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Neighborwoods:

    I bought this for my husband for Christmas to go with the other San Francisco art we own. It's beautifully made, though a bit thinner than I was expecting. I'd love to buy more for the other cities we've lived in! Beautiful, unique gift, definitely recommend.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Neighborwoods:

    My husband and I just celebrated our 5th anniversary, so I was looking for gifts made of wood. We've spent our entire married life in San Diego, and we both love maps. When I first was looking for wooden gifts, I thought of bamboo wood chimes, then I came across Neighborwoods and was very excited.

    When my husband opened it, we were first met with a lovely cedar aroma. The detail for the San Diego map is accurate and impressive. We are both quite pleased with that. The laser cutting is precise and clean, which is pleasing. I like the population statistic, but it would be nice to include an "as of" date on the map, in order to preserve its historical accuracy for the statistics and the actual map.

    Knowing how much it cost, however, I was disappointed with how thin the Neighborwood is. It couldn't be more than 1/4" thick.

    All in all, we're both very pleased with its look, and my husband found a place to hang it immediately.
