Very low crime, most residents are friendly and own their homes but I have found it to be a pretty conservative area! Schools are fair but there are plenty of businesses within walking distance to eat and shop.

I have lived in Mayfair for about 14 years, the people are usually friendly, just some places there are people who are not so great. Mayfair is filled with people with different backgrounds and its great, it helps everyone improve there social skill with different people.
I've lived in Mayfair since I was a kid and it used to be great. It used to be a kid and family friendly place and now its changed. People are way different now and there are constant shootouts and tons of drug use. I don't always feel safe walking around anymore and because of the kind of people walking around in the neighborhood. I've felt threatened many times because of the people who drive around and let themselves out there. I'm older now but I'm still afraid of the men who wonder around in their vehicles calling me smiling or the men who sit on their steps and hollering at me as I walk to certain places. Mayfair changed, and the change wasn't great.
