Kind of looks like a smaller version of Jacksonville.  It appears that when the expressways were built in the 1950's and 60's, they choked off the success and prosperity of many of the nations downtowns.  Bridgeport looks to be a super example of expressways cutting off downtown from the rest of the City.

With a population density of 8,720.9 residents per square mile living in the city, yes it is.

I was born and raised in Bridgeport than moved here to Jacksonville 15 years ago.  Those pics sure take me back. Downtown Jacksonville is a much larger version of downtown Bridgeport except there's a lot more to do here in Jacksonville.  And it's not so cold.

In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."
