Almost entirely residential, Mt. Oliver sits approximately three miles to the west of the Monongahela River on a hillcrest.
Not to be confused with the adjacent Borough of Mt. Oliver, which exists almost entirely independently of the city proper as a self-governing area, this small neighborhood of 600 has its own identity and character.
As a result of its small size, Mt. Oliver residents develop close ties with the surrounding neighborhoods' schools and businesses, such as Arlington, Carrick, and Mt. Oliver Borough. The neighborhood's residents also enjoy the security of a shared block watch group among these other adjacent communities.
