Situated on the South Side of Chicago, Bridgeport combines a passion for city politics with the excitement of baseball. Bridgeport has been the home or birthplace of five Chicago mayors, and sits adjacent to Guaranteed Rate Field—home of the legendary Chicago White Sox, an MLB team dating back to 1901.
Tasty eateries, convenient shops, and diverse markets line West 31st Street and South Halsted Street in the heart of Bridgeport. The 27-acre Palmisano Park provides plenty of space for outdoor activities along with breathtaking city views.
The Dan Ryan Expressway and I-55, located on the eastern side of the neighborhood, connects residents to Downtown Chicago, the south suburbs, and beyond. For those who prefer to take the train, the CTA Red Line offers quick service for the 4.4-mile ride.
