Many Manhattan-based apartment dwellers, as well as residents in White Plains and Stamford are attracted to Bridgeport because of the resurgence of its downtown. Residents can also buy a lot more for their money in Bridgeport than in other communities. New York City is easily accessible by both Amtrak and Metro-North commuter trains. A ferry service, accommodating both passengers and automobiles, runs across Long Island Sound to Port Jefferson, New York.
Within walking distance of the property lies the 370-acre green expanse of Seaside Park offering a sanctuary from the urban landscape. Residents can enjoy sandy beaches, sports fields, towering trees and sweeping views of Long Island Sound, which is virtually an extension of their own backyard.
Home to both the University of Bridgeport and Houstonian Community College, Bridgeport's public school system offers 30 elementary schools, three comprehensive high schools, two alternative programs and an inter-district vocational aqua-cultural school. The City has begun a large school renovation and construction program, with plans for new schools and modernization of existing buildings.
