Harrison, initially part of Essex County and later of Bergen County, is today in Hudson County. The original township, dating from 1840, was larger than the present mile-square area, which was established in 1867. With close to two hundred images, Harrison examines this community, which since its earliest days has been synonymous with industry. The simple country lane along which copper was transported to its Schuyler Avenue destination soon became Harrison Avenue-today, a main thoroughfare in the town known as "the Hive of Industry." This close-knit community of hardworking residents shares not only an industrial history-with well-known corporations, including RCA, Otis Elevator, and Worthington-but also a great athletic heritage. Among its best-known residents is Frank E. Rodgers, who served as mayor for more than four decades.

Author Biography

The authors, Ray and Karen A. Floriani, have combined their talents to produce Harrison. With a history degree from St. Bonaventure University, Ray Floriani taught American history, wrote for magazines for more than twenty-five years, and worked frequently in the sport field in Harrison for the past fifteen years. Karen A. Floriani, an award-winning photographer, spent her early childhood years in Harrison, the town her great-grandfather Thomas Reilly chose as his home. The Florianis' love of the community is evident in Harrison, a compelling history that incorporates the past with the present.
