The restaurant options of Harrison range from upscale to truly decadent, and the local country clubs and recreation options are widely renowned. Thanks to the area's incredible schools, the Purchase neighborhood boasts an active and youthful energy — all located within a moderately populated suburban locale from which to enjoy the finer things in life.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
In addition to all the NYC shopping and entertainment located just a stone's throw away, the Purchase and Harrison area offers an unmatched range of fine dining options.
For a quick bite with world-class flavor, locals can't get enough of the mouthwatering gourmet sandwiches and salads of Casa D'italia. If you have time to slow down and sate your need for Italian in style, enjoy Trattoria Vivolo's top-rated Italian fare from its meticulously renovated diner setting — we recommend the greenhouse seating area in particular. Gus's Restaurant offers yet another tight synthesis of fine dining and casual-yet-upscale atmosphere, serving the freshest Atlantic catches of the day in a simple and inviting pub-like setting.
Even more great Italian cuisine awaits at Tredici North, whose highly polished ambiance is the perfect choice for date nights, high-stakes business meetings, or even just to enjoy their highly popular happy hour with your closest friends.
Full of New England charm, make time to enjoy the quaint, colonial-era ambiance at The Cobble Stone, delivering mouthwatering American staples in a setting fit for the happiest and most intimate gatherings. The Copper House offers Italian lovers yet another ultra-deluxe dining option, complete with brick-oven-fired pizzas and other choice options from their highly selective menu of thoughtfully crafted dishes. Their customizable brunch special, in particular, is an excellent choice.
Things to Do
Those living the luxury lifestyle in Purchase enjoy no shortage of fun and exciting community events hosted by the Harrison Recreation Department. You can further get to know your neighbors at the annual "It's Great to Live in Harrison" festival in the West Harrison Business District, complete with fireworks, music, and a luxury car show. During the annual Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk, hosted by Manhattanville College, you'll be able to unite once again with the deeply bonded Harrison community.
For a more private social experience, be sure to join one of the many clubs in the area. The Westchester Country Club hosts a superb golf course and somehow even more satisfying dessert options at its restaurant, which alone is worth the visit. Alternately, Harrison Meadows Country Club provides equally great amenities, as well as regionally renowned golf events, tournaments, and training programs.
To stay even more active, the spectacularly well-equipped Life Time Westchester fitness club has everything necessary to elevate your heart rate and physical well-being. Purchase also provides easy access to the beach — just follow Rye Town Park's beautiful winding trails to the calm Long Island Sound waters, and be sure to check out the spectacular early 1900s Spanish architecture along the way.
In addition to the public school system's International Baccalaureate program, Purchase's higher education options are simply outstanding — and they take extra strides to ensure maximum post-graduate success for its alumni.
