Bridgeport Reviews

All Categories
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.
Review Bridgeport
Bridgeport was once a great little town to live in. However, over the years some of the community was less than appreciative of the area and has gone down hill. It appears the town is really trying to boost their standing but it is taking quite a long time. There is a gentlemen really working to bring more business and housing to try to make it similar to Consohocken. The middle and High school are both really great in terms of both athletics and academics.
I live in Bridgeport, it's a very quiet town with lots of shopping and restaurants with 2 miles away. I love that I can drive or walk to the activity and then return home to enjoy the calm of my town.
