If you are still looking for an apartment I may be able to help you. I know Bridgeport (CHICAGO neighborhood) very well - block by block. My family still owns property in great locations East of Halsted in Bridgeport, and I actually grew up in the area as well. Certain parts of Bridgeport truly hold a special place in my heart and I've lived up North, North suburbs, Downtown, and South and this is the one neighborhood (certain parts of it) that feels like a real neighborhood full of history and a feel of yesteryear. The properties are not cookie cutter homes like many you find in newer areas (some suburbs). It has a great example of Chicago architecture throughout from bungalows, greystones, raised ranches to beautiful brick multi-unit buildings, and now even some million dollar mansion like properties (mostly EAST of Halsted).
In any case, Bridgeport to me is a neighborhood with passionate people who love their neighborhood. Many who have moved out to the suburbs, I can tell you regret leaving due to the escalating cost of real estate in the area. Should you decide to contact me, as a NATIVE CHICAGOAN, I can help you with a rental in the area or any where else in Chicago for that matter.
