    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.

    There isn't much crime in the area, I haven't heard of much. However someone did siphon our gas tank in the early morning, but that's about all. There's quite a lot of graffiti, but it's not bad.

    The views are nice, and there's plenty to explore and look at. There's a lot of traffic and it's sometimes noisy, but theres lots of stores and restaurants.
