What is this?

Hoodline is a neighborhood news network covering San Francisco. Well, part of San Francisco. But we're growing.

How do I use it?

Just read, discuss, share, and enjoy.

If you want to see news from specific neighborhoods, use the filter menu on the right side of the main page.

If you want extra features, like getting stories delivered by email, sign up for an account.

If you have feedback for us, let us know.

How did this happen?

Hoodline has its origins in three local San Francisco blogs -- Haighteration, Hayeswire, and Uppercasing. Those blogs joined forces in 2014, switched from Wordpress to Rails, and brought on some new talent to form what is now Hoodline.

For the full gory details, check out our backstory.

Which neighborhoods does Hoodline cover?

As of September 2014, we have dedicated daily coverage in the Lower Haight, Upper Haight, Hayes Valley, Castro, and Divisadero/NoPa. We have additional, less frequent coverage in Alamo Square, Duboce Triangle, Civic Center, Cole Valley, Inner Sunset, and Mid-Market. We'll be expanding in the months ahead, so if you'd like to suggest a new neighborhood for us to cover, let us know.

How do you make money?

Insufficiently. But seriously, folks.

We've been lucky to have some great local businesses supporting us through advertising since the early days of Haighteration. We'll be announcing some new opportunities for advertisers soon.
