What locals are saying

The town of Harrison was originally part of a 30,000-acre land grant which was purchased by Captain William Sandford from the Unami (also known as the Anishinabe, a name best spoken after having a drink) Indians, who at that time inhabited the area. Sandford then named the region "New Barbadoes Neck."

The town of Harrison is located in Hudson County, New Jersey

The town of Harrison was originally part of a 30,000-acre land grant which was purchased by Captain William Sandford from the Unami (also known as the Anishinabe, a name best spoken after having a drink) Indians, who at that time inhabited the area. Sandford then named the region "New Barbadoes Neck."

The town of Harrison is located in Hudson County, New Jersey. The township is actually a suburb of the lovely nearby Newark, New Jersey. From the 2010 census the population was estimated to be just shy of 14,000, so it' s a pretty small place. Despite its small size, Harrison has lots of perks. Residents there enjoy an average annual high temperature in the summer of 86 degrees. Average low temperatures for the year occur in January, when it's not uncommon to experience a rather chilly 25 degrees. So, if you love real seasons, pack your bag!

Cost of Living in Harrison

Though the cost of living in Harrison is lower than that of the state average, it's a lot higher than the national average. So, save your pennies for the moving truck and the cost of a deposit.

When to Begin Your Search

Ideally, you should give yourself around six weeks or so to find a rental home in this vicinity. The availability of house and apartment rentals is pretty reasonable in Harrison, but it's best to come with your pockets stuffed full of greenbacks so you can flash the cash at the landlord. That way, you'll surely not be left disappointed! As for the best time of year to look? Well, the weather's rarely too hot or too cold, so from this point of view, you can take your pick.

What You Will Need

When trudging the streets in the Harrison area looking for a place to rent, be sure to bring proof of your current employment and income, the deposit, and also some references from your previous landlords. After all, your new landlord will be very keen to know for sure that you're not some form of demonic renter.

Neighborhoods in Harrison

There's a reasonable choice of rentals available in Harrison. Nevertheless, don't be tempted to hang around when you do find a suitable place. Instead, hand over the deposit and complete the necessary paperwork, and you'll be all set!

Dey Street: Dey Street is located close to Route 280, Route 21, Parkway, Path Train, and the Prudential Center. There are two banks, one grocery store and one gas station. If you're hungry, don't despair! There are no less than 20 restaurants in the vicinity, including Mi Gente Cafe, which offers Latin American cuisine, and Spanish Pavillion, which serves up -- you got it -- Spanish! This all adds up to making it an ideal part of town to find an apartment for rent.

Sussex Street: This neighborhood is a convenient place to live if you like to reside near where you run errands. Here, you can find a Quick Chek store, two banks, a gas station and a ton of restaurants. It's a great place to find an apartment in Harrison.

Somerset Street: Somerset Street offers three banks, one gas station and about 20 restaurants. The WalkScore for this vicinity is an extremely healthy 80 of 100, and the crime rate is low, all of which add up to a near-ideal place for an apartment rental.

Davis Avenue: With Turnpike NJ exit 15W close by and routes 21 and 280 just a few minutes' drive away, this is an excellent location to find three-bedroom houses for rent. The WalkScore is a very healthy 74 out of 100, and there are seven schools, two banks, and 20 restaurants all in the vicinity. The crime rating for Davis Avenue is a perfect zero!

Life in Harrison

Harrison is served by Interstate 280, which runs directly through the town. Traveling westward, I-280 will take you to Route 21, Interstate 80, and the Garden State Parkway. Heading east, it will lead you to Route Seven and the New Jersey Turnpike. Local buses are operated by several companies. The nearest airport to Harrison is Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, which is only about five miles from central Harrison.

How do folks who reside in Harrison keep themselves busy? The Red Bull Arena on Cape May Street provides a thrilling experience together with a terrific atmosphere for all New York Red Bulls fans, and everybody else for that matter. The New Jersey Performing Arts Center on Center Street in Newark offers a whole variety of live performances, from classical music to performances of America's Got Talent. The New Jersey Historical Society on Park Place in Newark is a non-profit library, museum, and archive. The establishment also provides regular historically inclined lectures to the general public. Moving to dining opportunities within the town of Harrison, The Spanish Pavillion Restaurant on Harrison Avenue offers an interesting combo of Portuguese, seafood, and steak. If you're hungry enough, you can take advantage of all three! La Fiamma Restaurant, also on Harrison Avenue, does the Italian Job - and offers first-class cuisine! Tony's Deli on Frank E. Rodgers Boulevard N. is, as the name suggests, a delicatessen, though it also provides a thoroughly fulfilling restaurant experience for its customers. If you like deli-style food -- and who doesn't? -- then this is the place for you!
