Moving to Bridgeport....looking to rent

Asked by Jenna Tanis, Saint Petersburg, FL Wed Jun 13, 2012

Due to my husbands job it looks like we will be moving to Bridgeport sometime this fall. I have been looking at a lot of the Q&A's and I've seen a great deal about Bport being a decent place to live! What I'd like to know is what neighborhoods are the "bad" places. I'll be searching for places from FL (where we currently live) and don't want to bother with the mroe crime ridden areas of town. We have both lived in cities all of our lives so we certainly aren;t turned off by them but we know where are certain places you can walk around late at night and there are certain places you shouldn't.....I'm looking for exactly those areas I should avoid....we'll have a brand new baby with us by then :)

East Side in caertain locations can be a challenge.
It is not all bad but there are certain areas that command higher prices in Bridgeport than others.
North End and Black rock areas are nice but prices can start going up. I hope you have found your rental Home!!!

You get alot for your money in the Bridgeport rental market. If you would like to contact us we have properties with 2 bedroom apartments for rent. As you are city people you know that there are always ares that are better than others. We love the city and have seen great changes in the last few years to make the West and East side better. This translates into lower rents to get better tenants into these neighborhoods. Give us a call when you are readya and come take a look. Looking is always free as I tell everyone.
Best,
