Local Favorites

Coperaco Cafe

Coperaco has distinguished itself from your everyday local coffee spot by investing in the processes that makes coffee great. A respect for nature and love of travel inspires their coffee journey, and a small-batch roasting plant in Brooklyn ensures their beans are delivered fresh and up to the highest standards.

The Vanguard

Your go-to spot for happy hour specials and elevated pub fare, the Vanguard’s vintage design cues nod to Harrison’s industrial past fabricating wartime supplies in the 1940s. Sit down to a fried shrimp po’boy in the “Mess Hall” or take a signature cocktail to the Jazz Lounge for live music and events every Saturday night.

Red Bull Arena

Support your local squad! Cheer on the New York Red Bulls at Harrison’s very own soccer-specific stadium. The arena’s most noteworthy feature, a semi-translucent canopy covering all 25,000 seats, leaves the pitch exposed allowing fans to enjoy the unique experience of an outdoor match with the added benefit of protection from the elements.

Top’s Diner

Depending on who you ask, Tops Diner is either, “America’s best diner,” or, “the most famous restaurant in New Jersey.”  Either way, this NJ institution has been slinging up diner classics since 1942 with a reputation for using only the freshest, most natural ingredients in their signature comfort food and all-day breakfast offerings.

Harrison PATH Station

You can get there from here. Direct routes to Newark and downtown Manhattan, with transfers along the way offering access to the other PATH lines and the NYC Subway system.

Waterfront Walkway

Get some fresh air with a trip along Harrison’s waterfront riverwalk. This pedestrian path follows along the river, offering a tranquil atmosphere with views across the water to neighboring Newark.
