A Rich History and Strong Community Roots

Mayfair is a working-class neighborhood centered on the bustling intersection of Cottman and Frankford Avenues. Bordered by Tacony and Wissinoming to the south and east, Holmesburg to the east, Pennypack Park to the north, and Oxford Circle and Rhawnhurst to the west, Mayfair offers a unique blend of historical charm and modern convenience.

Originally farmland, Mayfair began its transformation into a residential area in the 1920s. Notable early establishments included The Edwin Forrest Home for Children and The Oxford and Lower Dublin Poor House. The neighborhood developed rapidly after World War II, providing spacious urban living with larger rowhouses, front yards, and rear parking garages. These features, coupled with new shopping centers along Roosevelt Boulevard, Frankford Avenue, and Cottman Avenue, made Mayfair a forerunner in the suburbanization movement, connecting it seamlessly to surrounding neighborhoods.

According to the 2010 census, the neighborhood had a population of 38,202 people, predominantly White (56%), with significant African American (19%), Hispanic (16%), Asian (8%), and mixed-race (2%) communities. The 2000 census revealed strong ties to Irish ancestry, with other notable ancestries including German, Italian, Polish, and English. More recently, Mayfair has seen growth in its Asian American population and increased diversity with immigrants from various countries contributing to the community's vibrant tapestry.
