No-- its a risky investment, aside from being a very dangerous place to live in certain spots.

Look at Stratford, Milford or Norwalk-- they all have decent prices and are better investments for you. Odds are if you can afford Bridgeport you can afford something in those cities.

I'd avoid MOST of Bridgeport....look for a place in the valley....Woodbridge, Seymour, Derby, ect......Good luck to you.

Bridgeport is the worst city in CT and one of the worst in the Northeast. Compares to Newark or Camden.

There are parts that are OK..a friend of mine just purchased a co-op near the water in Bridgeport but the commute might be longer because of traffic. I would try's less expensive then Stamford and closer (It's just the next town over)

Traffic on 95 and the Merritt is pretty heavy during rush hour because alot of people commute from local towns to Stamford. Seymour, as suggested is farther then 30 minutes.
