Oxford Circle is a neighborhood in the lower Northeast. Its namesake is the much used traffic circle at Roosevelt Boulevard and Oxford Avenue. The Oxford Circle neighborhood has traditionally included the areas up to Rhawnhurst and Mayfair but does not really have a fixed boundary other than in publications about Philadelphia which are of a public relations or informational nature.
Oxford Circle, along with Castor Gardens, Mayfair, and Tacony, was originally part of Oxford Township and was one of the early suburbs of Philadelphia. Today’s Oxford Circle contains a diverse population, including Caucasian, Jewish, Korean, Hispanic (mostly Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and Brazilians), West Indian (mostly Haitians), and African American. Oxford Circle is about 37% Black, 32% White, 22% Hispanic, and 9% Asian.
Many residents and local investors are attracted to the area’s proximity to the Roosevelt Mall.
