The new Richmond Type Map (previously) is pretty sweet, but totally disses most of the neighborhood.
We won’t even talk about Southside. But I still love it.
That sucks but I didn’t really get the hype over this “map” anyway.
I won’t know for certain till I get mine but it looks like where I used to live in Forest Hill got included but now where I am now off Broad
There can be only one!

I hope they have the neighborhoods right… chances are, no.
“…spurns much of the East End”
So do most Richmonders!
I have it and its fabulous! I’ve emailed Ork Posters asking about the potential for a Richmond map- no dice. Enter the Richmond Typemap. It’s a totally different vibe than the Ork posters but not in a bad way!
One con though- the map is measures 19×25…kind of a awkward size and surprise (!), frames don’t come that size. Bummer, I know. Looks like people will have to get creative in their framing/display options!
Does anyone know where we can view the whole map online and see detail? The website won’t allow for zooming, and I would rather see how specific neighborhoods got labeled before purchasing.

I hate to be stereotypical, but many West Enders don’t know there are multiple neighborhoods in East End/Southside/Northside… they know the Near West End, River Road, Carytown, the Fan, Oregon Hill, Downtown, and Churchill. Borders to never be crossed by scared suburbanites: M Street on 25th, 25th on Main, 64/95 Overpass on Chamberlayne heading away from VCU, anywhere south of the river within city limits… you know the drill.
