Harrison

Harrison

The picturesque town of Harrison is an exquisite vision of an emerald landscape with acres of rolling land and winding, scenic roads, interspersed with shimmering lakes, streams and brooks.

Bordered by Mamaroneck, White Plains, Rye and Scarsdale, Harrison has the unusual status of being a town and village, and encompasses Purchase and West Harrison. With much of the residential land zoned for one to two acres, it has retained a quiet country character and tranquil beauty with its preserved woodlands and wetlands.

The town of Harrison was described as a “good place to live” in a real estate brochure published in the early 1900s. As residents grew to appreciate the community, the motto of Harrison became “It’s Great to Live in Harrison,” and it’s no wonder. With natural beauty, abundant recreational opportunities and an excellent educational system, Harrison offers a cohesive community of active citizens who happily gather for the annual “It’s Great to Live in Harrison” celebration. The community enjoys a symbiotic relationship with Manhattanville College and the State University of New York at Purchase, which serve as educational and cultural resources for residents. The schools are surrounded by manicured expanses of land that add to the sense of rural openness.

A commercial presence along Interstate 287, the “Platinum Mile,” is home to corporations that occupy hundreds of acres of lush green compounds, enhancing the town’s beauty and contributing to the tax base. The predominantly residential town of Harrison offers an eclectic mix of homes in tree-lined neighborhoods and gated communities including older classics, new construction, magnificent estates, and several co-op and condominium complexes.
