Wynnefield (a.k.a. The Field) is a diverse middle-class neighborhood in West Philadelphia. Its borders are 53rd Street at Jefferson to the south, Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park to the east, City Avenue (commonly referred to as “City Line”) to the north and the Amtrak Main Line tracks to the west.
Surrounding neighborhoods include Bala Cynwyd to the north, Wynnefield Heights and Belmont Village to the east, Parkside to the south, and Overbrook to the west. Its main commercial arteries are North 54th Street, Bryn Mawr Avenue (2200 block), and City Avenue. It is the home of the television station WPHL-TV (MY PHL 17).
Today Wynnefield closely parallels highly regarded Mt. Airy as being one of the most racially diverse neighborhoods in Philadelphia with current demographics of 64.7% Black and 28.4% Caucasian as compared to Mt. Airy’s 62.5% Black and 31.7% Caucasian.
The William Mann School and Wynnestay are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Saint Joseph’s University is just outside the neighborhood. The boundary of Wynnefield is N. 54th Street. The athletic fields, however, are in Wynnefield at North 54th St. and Overbrook to City Line Avenue.
