Bridgeport has affordable housing for a single mom looking for good schools and safety. Some areas are not as safe as others so you have to be aware of particular streets and your surroundings. Accessibility to shopping and employment is excellent since King of Prussia is 1-2 miles away, and Philadelphia is about a 20 minute drive. There is public transportation if you need that, both around town and to the city. There is a lot of renovation going on in town, mainly building new homes. It is sad to see some of the historical buildings go down but I'm also glad there is revitalization going on.
