Recommended Posts

Does anyone know that Bridgeport is CT's largest city. I dont think it gets enough recognition. I wish I had some photos of it.

I always thought the largest city was Hartford. I guess I was wrong. Actually, I'd never even heard of Bridgeport before I joined the fourms. LOL.

If you'd ever been there, you'd wish you'd never joined the forums.

Oh that was kinda mean, only kinda though. Bridgeport, like most of Cannecticut's cities is very very poor. It has a lot of run down neighbourhoods. It is extremely disheartening given how good the bones of the city are, and how it has such a great location right on Long Island Sound. It's location is also great on account of it's connections to I-95, the Amtrak Acela Northeast Corridor, and MetroNorth into New York.

It'll come around someday, but now it is sad. :(

I Googled up this picture of it.
