Bridgeport's Polish history can be seen in its two churches in the Polish Cathedral style: St. Mary of Perpetual Help and St. Barbara. The Art Institute of Chicago has recently done restoration work on the paintings in the Shrine Altars at St. Mary of Perpetual Help which date back to 1890, with further plans calling for restoration of the stained glass windows and to complete the painting of the interior ceilings and rotunda. The influence of other Eastern European immigrants to Bridgeport is evident at St. Jerome Croatian Catholic Church, which holds services in both Croatian and English.
U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox, is often thought to be geographically located in Bridgeport. This is a misconception. The stadium is actually located one block to the east, in the Armour Square community area.
Bridgeport has long been one of the city's political hotbeds, having been home to five of Chicago's 45 mayors. They are, in order of service: Edward Kelly, Martin Kennelly, Richard J. Daley, Michael Bilandic, and Richard M. Daley. The most prominent example of the neighborhood's influence on Chicago politics is illustrated by a 46-year long stretch (1933-1979) in which a Bridgeport native held the city's highest office.
Bridgeport is served by the Bridgeport News, a neighborhood newspaper delivered weekly on Wednesdays to homes throughout the neighborhood. The area is also served by two Chicago Transit Authority train stations..
Is there a neighborhood more classically Chicago than Bridgeport?
It’s one of the city’s oldest communities, yet thanks to its proximity to downtown it has been brimming in recent years with new development and renewed interest. It has been home to five Chicago mayors and countless politicians and city workers. And there are also plenty of Bridgeport condos.
Bridgeport is also one of Chicago’s most ethnically diverse, which may come as a surprise to many Chicagoans who still think of Bridgeport almost exclusively as an Irish-American neighborhood. In 2008 the Chicago Sun-Times ranked Bridgeport as the fourth most ethnically diverse community in the city, following Albany Park, West Ridge and Rogers Park.
Like many of Chicago’s 77 officially recognized neighborhoods, boundaries can sometimes vary depending upon who is asked. But generally, Bridgeport is defined as the community between the Chicago River on the north and west, Canal Street on the East and Pershing Road (3900 South) on the South.
Parishes and churches are numerous in Bridgeport. So, too, are independent shops that line Halsted Street, 35th Street, Pershing Road, Archer Avenue and other thoroughfares.
One of the major Bridgeport public transportation stations at Archer & Halsted where you can catch the Orange Line, Halsted #8 bus and many others. There is lots of safe well lighted free parking across the street.
