I like that it's a safe and convenient area. There are schools, food, shopping and transportation readily accessible, which is really important especially for families. I moved to Mayfair 15 years ago and although things have changed since then, I still really enjoy it here.
I have lived in Mayfair for all seventeen years of my life. Because it is where my parents chose to settle down, I don't have a choice in this situation. When I am older, hopefully I will be able to afford living in a different neighborhood. I often feel unsafe walking alone, especially at night. The other teenagers in this area are rude and don't focus on their education. However, with the Frankford Transportation Center fairly close, it is pretty easy to commute from Mayfair to other areas of the city, especially Center City which is helpful. The area seems to have worsened over the years and I am not sure why.
