A scenic, bay-side community, Oceanview offers tourists and locals alike a chance to experience the beach as it was in the 20th century. Extensive efforts by Evo and the CAS have resulted in the Chesapeake Bay being one of the few (relatively) clean bodies of water in the Western Hemisphere. As a result, the sleepy community of Oceanview, located between more upscale Willoughby Spit and the Little Creek Amphibious Base, Oceanview features numerous cottages and quaint apartments for permanent residents and several reasonably priced hotels that allow the average wage-slave an opportunity to enjoy a clean beach.
Starting in the 20’s, Oceanview saw an influx of Irish immigrants, resulting in many family-friendly European cultural activities and restaurants.
The Straight Shit
While the ads are correct that the average wage-slave can enjoy some sun and beach in Oceanview, anyone planning on staying long-term, or opening up a new business, has arrange things with the O’Malley gang first. Officially, Oceanview is policed under the Norfolk District’s contract with Southern Cross Security, most of the officers either accept bribes, or avoid interfering with O’Malley business.
The O’Malleys keep crime they don’t approve of to a minimum, which means that if you’re up on your payments to them, you’re generally safe from robbery or harassment. Additionally, the neighborhood is officially patrolled by SCS officers who, though they don’t interfere with the O’Malleys know it’s usually safe for them to stop the typical petty-theft, assault, and domestic violence crimes.
With the security offered by the O’Malleys, the beach in walking distance, and various tourist-trap style entertainment venues, Oceanview offers plenty to recommend it.
The O’Malleys have also made sure that Matrix coverage is ample and free throughout Oceanview.
