Bridgeport is a strong, working class area with a lot of young professionals moving in. Unfortunately, this has also led to an underlying pushback from a small percentage of longtime residents and a noticeable sense of self-entitlement from some.

Crime is very low. For example, homes are not broken into, and neither are cars. But, if someone hits your car, the odds are they won’t let you know. And almost nobody here will pick up after their dog. But it’s a safe neighborhood.

It’s easy to get the sense that most residents here don’t appreciate the town in which they live. But that doesn’t represent Bridgeport as a whole.

I just wish the local government could get to together enough to take small steps toward really making Bridgeport nice. For example, Every train that rolls through town, regardless of the our, sounds its horn the entire time. It’s anxiety-inducing.

I moved out this town for a reason. It’s nothing but ghetto blocks and bad vibes. The streets there aren’t safe!
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.
