Picture Yourself in Harrison - Your New Hometown!

Located just 30 minutes from New York City, Harrison is a small town of remarkable beauty and rolling green hills. As one resident told us, “Harrison’s quality of life can be summarized in the town’s motto: It’s Great to Live in Harrison!” In addition to magnificent homes, situated on sprawling acreage, Harrison has vibrant downtown neighborhoods with their own history and character.
Harrison is bordered by North Castle, White Plains, Rye, Mamaroneck, and Scarsdale. With a population of approximately 28,000, its boundaries are in the shape of a figure-eight with the hamlets of Purchase and West Harrison located in the northern portion. The southern half of the town is known as Harrison, or Downtown, and is divided into four neighborhoods: The Brentwood, Sunnyridge, Sterling Ridge/The Trails, and South Downtown.
