Setting & Lifestyle

It is a fairly quiet city because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Harrison has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Harrison has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Harrison than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Harrison may be for you.
Being a small city, Harrison does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
