Mayfair is a vibrant Northeast Philadelphia neighborhood, home to a variety of stores, pubs and restaurants and the proud host of community events all year long. The Civic Association consists of volunteer citizens focused on the betterment of their Community.
Our General meetings are held the 3rd Monday of March, May, September and November and the 4th Monday of January at 7PM at the Mayfair Community Center, St. Vincent St. and Battersby St.
At the intersection of Cottman and Frankford avenues, high atop the street pole is a well-defined white police box that records daily activity.
Originally put up for safety reasons during the Phillies’ World Series before-and-after parties, the surveillance camera was used to aid the police in monitoring any suspicious or harmful conduct that the fans might have tried during the games.
To warn participants that they are being filmed, a constant, flashing blue strobe light pulses just above the white box.
Surprising news came to many Mayfair residents after the baseball season ended and they were told at their town watch meeting that the camera wasn’t coming down. This fact angered more than a few members.
