Review Bridgeport
I love the diversity of Bridgeport, CT, shopping, eating and transportation is very convenient. The sewer and property tax, and the rules governing it, should be restructured. Especially for the elderly and or those who live on fixed incomes. I love the diversity of Bridgeport, CT, shopping, eating, and transportation is very convenient. The sewer and property tax and the rules governing it should be restructured. Especially for the elderly and for those who live on fixed incomes. I believe the public high schools should have more business courses for the kids to have skill upon graduation such as typing, office procedures and business courses.
Bridgeport itself is not the best place to live alone or travel into. The public schools are ranked the lowest in the state. Crime is very high and financially the city is near bankrupt. If you live in the black rock area you will have tons of restaurants, bars, and activities to choose from! Blsck Rock and North send of Bridgeport are the safest areas. Fairfield, Trumbull, Milford all have easy access from Bridgeport and much safer!
