Good neighborhood to raise a family, minus occasional nonsense. Unfortunately some of the opiod abuser have made there way into the neighborhoods and drive their cars over by the park and utilize that space. Disturbing that the kids have to see this.

Overbrook is a good diverse neighborhood. The biggest problem is the youth and boredom. The homes are nice and it's a good place to raise a family. The majority of the residents are hard working middle class families.

It is close to suburban areas, public transportation and major highways, which makes this an ideal location.
I've been living in this neighborhood for the last 17 years from a child into an adult, and it has been a really good experience. It is a residential area, so there isn't much to do for fun. There are really nice houses and scenery around, not a lot of troublemakers in the neighborhood the streets are clean, and the neighbors have been really nice to each other.
