Overbrook Reviews

All Categories
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.
I have grown up in the Overbrook area. While the neighborhood has changed in many ways, I do feel as though my area is a great place to live compared to other surrounding areas. I would like to see my community remain safe, clean and organized. If neighbors work together, we will be able to accomplish this goal.
