The Whistleblower Advocates are proud to serve the residents of Oxford Circle, providing expert legal support to those who stand up against fraud, corruption, and other injustices.

A Neighborhood Steeped in History

Oxford Circle gets its name from the prominent traffic circle at Roosevelt Boulevard and Oxford Avenue. This historic neighborhood has evolved over the decades, transforming from farmland to a bustling suburban community. Initially part of Oxford Township, the area began to develop rapidly just before World War II. The Hyman Korman Company played a significant role in this transformation, constructing the characteristic brick and stone row houses that still define the neighborhood's architecture today.

Rich Cultural Tapestry

The demographic landscape of Oxford Circle has shifted significantly since its early days. Once a predominantly white middle-class neighborhood with a strong Jewish presence, Oxford Circle is now a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities. The neighborhood is home to a diverse population, including Caucasians, Jewish, Koreans, Hispanics (primarily Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and Brazilians), West Indians (mostly Haitians), and African Americans. This diversity is reflected in the vibrant community life, with a rich tapestry of traditions, cuisines, and cultural celebrations.

Geographic and Natural Landmarks

Oxford Circle is geographically defined by several key boundaries: Roosevelt Boulevard to the southeast, Oxford Avenue to the west, Devereaux Avenue to the northeast, and Cheltenham Avenue to the south. The neighborhood's natural landscape is shaped by three historic creeks: Wissinoming Creek, Pennypack Creek, and Tacony Creek. These waterways, integral to the area's development, provided a lush backdrop long before urbanization took hold. Even today, remnants of the Little Tacony Creek can be traced through the community, adding a touch of nature to the urban environment.

Community and Education

Education is a cornerstone of Oxford Circle, with institutions like the Laura H. Carnell School, named after the esteemed educator, serving the community's youth. The school’s addition to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988 underscores its historical and educational significance.

Governance and Representation

Oxford Circle is well-represented in both state and local government. Key figures include state representatives Jared Solomon, Kevin Boyle, and James Clay, as well as state senators Christine Tartaglione and John P. Sabatina Jr. On the city council, Cherelle Parker, Bobby Henon, and Maria Quinones-Sanchez advocate for the neighborhood's needs and development.

Demographic Insights

According to the 2000 U.S. Census, Oxford Circle’s population was 48,483, with a slight female majority (53.1%). The median age was 35.7 years, reflecting a balanced mix of youth and elderly residents. The community continues to grow and evolve, embracing new residents and fostering a vibrant, inclusive environment.
