You'll definitely want one of these tiny, detailed models of NYC

New York City real estate may be exorbitantly expensive, but now you can have a fraction of the city for a fraction of the price!

Microscape models are incredibly detailed 1:5000 architectural models of cities that you'll probably want to snatch up for your desk or coffee table immediately.

The company currently has a Kickstarter to expand to other areas, but you can currently pledge money to reserve 1 of 24 six-inch square tiles showing different parts of Manhattan. (The lowest level pledge available is currently $85) You can choose an area of the city that has a special significance to you or maybe even your own neighborhood.

For those with some serious cash to burn, there's also a model of the entire island of Manhattan (consisting of roughly 200 tiles) available for $25,000. So... that would be a pretty cool gift.

See more photos of the models below.
