Setting & Lifestyle
Because of many things, Harrison is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Harrison really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Harrison perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
Residents will find that the village is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Harrison is worth considering.
One of the benefits of Harrison is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.22 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Being a small village, Harrison does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
