The View is San Francisco’s longest running neighborhood newspaper. Our nearly 50-years longevity is testament to our ability to provide our readers with a news service that informs their lives.

View readers have historically been property owners and long-time community members with a strong commitment to local businesses and their community. Our advertisers reinforce their relationship with their existing customers, reach new ones, and expand their visibility while supporting Southeast San Francisco’s respected community voice — The Potrero View.
