The Oceanview is a neighborhood that slopes to the south along a ridge that runs east to west. Most of the houses were built after the 1930's. There is a four square block recreation center in the neighborhood. Most of the residents shop at Stonestown or along Ocean Ave.
The area was getting pretty rough in the 1980's with drug sales being the draw. A couple of African American elders Minnie and Lovie Ward started to organize neighbors and demand the civic attention that was needed to take back the neighborhood. The group is still active, OMI Neighbors in Action
The area is largely single family homes.
