About Bridgeport

What Wrigleyville is to the North, Bridgeport is to the South, sort-of. Home to the White Sox, Bridgeport is Chicago’s first official neighborhood. Bridgeport, unlike it’s baseball counterpart, offers a breadth of art and culture headlined by the Bridgeport Art Center, restaurants and bars.

Noisier the closer you get to the stadium, Bridgeport has lots of low-rise condos and single family homes still close to the Red or Orange lines and Halsted Street.

Busier than some of it’s South Side companions, Bridgeport benefits from a bit more of an Urban feel thanks to it’s closer proximity to downtown but still benefits from great local restaurants and neighborhood bars to serve all types.
