Overbrook is located at the edge of the city, south of Downtown, and is surrounded by the city neighborhoods Brookline and Carrick and the boroughs of Castle Shannon and Whitehall. Historically Overbrook Borough was one of the last annexed into the City of Pittsburgh. The historic Overbrook Community Center retains its borough origins and is still used by the community.

Overbrook is convenient to both Phillips and Brookline Parks, as well the Brownsville Road business district. It is an easy trip on the South Busway to Downtown, Station Square, and Century III and South Hills Village Malls with a light rail and busway stations.

Overbrook residents maintain solid, family homes on quiet, tree-lined streets. Housing is very affordable for moderate income buyers, and the variety of architectural styles means that there's something for every taste.

Overbrook has experienced an influx of young families with children in recent years. The Overbrook Center and ballfield provide recreation for youth. These families have discovered a friendly neighborhood of 4,400 people, with good schools, lots of green space and neighbors who care about each other and their community.
