This is The M-OceanView Journal, covering San Francisco from The Embarcadero to West Portal to Balboa Park and throughout the Bay Area.

I'm Christopher Rogers. I grew up in the Bay Area and I've lived alongside the M since 1996. This is my home.

The name of the neighborhood is Ocean View. Sometimes there's a space in the middle, sometimes there isn't. The name of the streetcar line is the M Ocean View, often with the added hyphen for clarity. I decided to split the difference by capitalizing the V when spelling out the name of my website.

I am writing about the areas along the M. I am writing about San Francisco. I am writing about the Bay Area and wherever I travel.

If you'd like to contact me with a tip or feedback or a story, please do. My email is cmr@moceanviewjournal.com.

Thank you.
