ABOUT BRIDGEPORT

Bridgeport is a working-class neighborhood on Chicago's near South Side and, as the birthplace and home to five Chicago mayors, a reputed hotbed for city politics. In addition to its homegrown civic leaders, the neighborhood also claims the Chicago White Sox, one of Major League Baseball's oldest franchises.

As part of an artistic movement on Chicago's South Side, Bridgeport has become a hinge point for revitalizing the area's connection to arts and culture. The Zhou B Art Center displays amazing pieces of contemporary art, while the Bridgeport Art Center and Co-Prosperity Sphere are prevailing staples in the community. 

Along South Halsted's ethnic business corridor you will find Schaller's Pump, Chicago's longest-operating tavern. This neighborhood staple has been serving up brown bottles and butt steak for more than 135 years. Nana, one of the most notable farm-to-table organic restaurants in Chicago, is one of the corridor's more recent gifts to the city.
