Harrison and Purchase
Harrison, located about 23 miles from New York City, is also the location of Purchase, one of the finest residential sections in the county. Purchase, the historic estate area of Harrison, extends into the manicured corporate parks known as "The Platinum Mile." In addition to Metro-North, the Bee-Line bus system operates daily. Shuttle bus service is available to all the major area airports and is available at the Rye Town Hilton. The New England Thruway, Hutchinson River Parkway and Cross Westchester Expressway are easily accessible.
Residents may use eight town parks, including community centers, three outdoor pools and several playgrounds. The beaches of Rye are minutes away and Harrison and Rye are home to five well-known country clubs.
Manhattanville College and SUNY Purchase are both located here, along with the headquarters for both PepsiCo and MasterCard. SUNY Purchase’s 500-acre campus houses two cultural treasures: the Neuberger Museum of Art and the Purchase Performing Arts Center. PepsiCo’s grounds feature the well-known Donald M. Kendall Sculpture Garden, a tranquil respite bringing thousands of visitors annually to view its works of art and stroll its beautifully landscaped grounds.
