Do you live, work or spend time in the Outer Sunset? Daily Hoodline coverage is here. Today, we're expanding past 19th Avenue all the way to the ocean, and from Golden Gate Park south to Sloat Boulevard.

Actually, we've sort of already begun.

In the past few weeks, we've been breaking Outer Sunset business stories, like the closure of Yum Yum Fish and the proposal for the neighborhood's first medical cannabis dispensary. We've also been covering community happenings—like the Sunset Holiday Mercantile Fair last month.  

We're closely following civic issues like recent crime, proposed L-Taraval stop removals, and housing—especially the Sunset Blueprint and the plan to build along main streets across the neighborhood.
