Woodcrest Ave today, but it is apparently under contract. I would just love to know more about the area, the properties, and if it's an overall good investment. I've been driving through the area somewhat freqently at different times of the day to get a sense of the area, but I still can't get a good read. Some areas seem much nicer than others. Thoughts?

Woodcrest Ave is a great street. The homes sell quickly on it. I actually live on Woodcrest and am one of the proud members of the OFC community.

I have lived in Overbrook Farms for the last 15 years and love it. We are a stable neighborhood that is ethnically diverse with great housing stock that is a great value. The Overbrook Farms club http://www.overbrookfarmsclub.org/ is a very active civic association that is one of the oldest in the country. It is a 15 minute drive or a 12 minute train ride into Center City . Check the earlier wiki answer for the boundaries of Overbrook Farms, from 58th to 66th Sts., Woodbine Ave to City Ave, with the 6400 and 6600 blocks of Woodcrest and Morris Park Aves. We are an historic district, but what makes the neighborhood is the diversity and dedication of the residents. It's not for everybody, but for most of those of us who live there, we wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

Overbrook, Overbrook Farms, and Overbrook Park are 3 unique divisions of the Overbrook area. So you may want to check out the 2 sites below to get an idea of what neighborhood best suit you.
