Realtors, by law, are not allowed to comment on crime rates etc. You certainly can look at several websites or call the local police department more information. My brother-in-law grew up in Bridgeport and there are a number of lovely neighborhoods in the City. I suggest you look up houses in the price range, Google map them to see the surrounding areas and then take a ride. This is basically what I did years ago when I bought a house in Brooklyn. But I will tell you that I LOVE the Black Rock section of Bridgeport near the water - very special.
