The first issue of The Potrero View hit the streets August 1, 1970, “published monthly by The Potrero Hill Mob . . . in the hope that Potrero Hill might come together.” The View is San Francisco’s oldest continuously published neighborhood newspaper. Most early issues covered school sports, activities at the Potrero Hill Neighborhood House, the Recreation Center, and the Potrero Branch Library, as well as local news and city politics.
Both 2002 and 2003 were given the volume number XXXIII.
