Bridgeport

Community Area: Bridgeport
Located on Chicago's South Side, Bridgeport is the birthplace of five Chicago mayors, the home of the Chicago White Sox, and one of Chicago's original ethnic working-class neighborhoods. The community's rich history is rooted in the construction of the Illinois and Michigan Canal along the Chicago River, which brought immigrants of many nationalities to work and live in the area. Today, the close-knit residential area is experiencing a renaissance of sorts as younger homebuyers who grew up in Bridgeport return to take advantage of the community's affordable housing and proximity to downtown Chicago.

In recent years residential developers have jumped on opportunities to convert the older warehouses and manufacturing facilities peppered throughout Bridgeport, creating loft homes that appeal to the younger buyers discovering the area. New-construction single-family homes and three-flat walk-up condominiums are also springing up in the community alongside Bridgeport's historic bungalows.

While Bridgeport started out as a working-class neighborhood, the area has become a thriving artists' community with multiple galleries, the Bridgeport Museum of Modern Art, and the Version and Select Media art festivals. Of course for the sports-minded, the excitement of a Major League Baseball game is right up the street when the White Sox play at U.S. Cellular Field.
