Mayfair: Local Businesses and Vendors Rally for Small Spending

At first Dominico joked about losing the parking on Ryan Avenue for his store. Situated on the corner of Frankford and Ryan avenues, the pop-ups intrude on his store’s parking real estate. But being a team player for the overall goodness of the neighborhood trumps a few parking spots.

    Mayfair: Local Businesses and Vendors Rally for Small Spending
    Mayfair pop-ups may do much to unify a neighborhood, but businesses don't all see eye to eye on the subject of regular pop-up events. The intent, to bring together community and possibly spur local spending, isn't an idea anyone would do away with, but some businesses are much more welcoming of the idea than others.

Friends in disbelief as police probe 14-year-old's shooting death in Mayfair

Authorities on Wednesday continued searching for leads on Wilsey's two male attackers, who were wearing hoodies, police said. One fired a semiautomatic handgun at Wilsey and a friend on the 6200 block of Brous Avenue around 9 p.m. Monday, according to police.

    The group text went out among friends at Northeast High School almost every day after the final bell. Who wants to play pickup football at Woodrow Wilson Middle School? Almost every time, Ian Wilsey's buddies said, he would say yes. The 14-year-old ninth grader was outgoing, athletic, and funny, a big personality with a unique sense of humor.
