The secluded village of West Harrison, New York is located within the town of Harrison, in Westchester County, about 25 miles north of Manhattan.
Although passengers on the Metro North Railroad reach Grand Central Terminal in just 45 minutes, there are no signs of big city living in West Harrison.
Rather, only one major road provides access to the hamlet, Lake Street. The road is flanked by Silver Lake on one side and a small business route on the other. West Harrison is nestled between Silver Lake and several steep hills and cliffs — the primary reason why there is limited access to this tiny neighborhood that sits just south of the high-end village of Purchase.
Children in West Harrison attend the Harrison Central School District.
Although many residents of West Harrison commute to Manhattan, many employment opportunities exist right in the area. Several notable corporations are based in the town of Harrison, including MasterCard, Pepsico, and Atlas Air.
West Harrison offers natural beauty and serenity that is rarely found so close to New York City.
