Bridgeport's Polish history can be seen in its two churches in the Polish
Cathedral style: St. Mary of Perpetual Help and St. Barbara. The Art Institute of Chicago has recently done restoration work on the paintings in the Shrine Altars at St. Mary of Perpetual Help which date back to 1890, with further plans calling for restoration of the stained glass windows and to complete the painting of the interior ceilings and rotunda. The influence of other Eastern European immigrants to Bridgeport is evident at St. Jerome Croatian Catholic Church, which holds services in both Croatian and English.
U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox, is often thought to be geographically located in Bridgeport. This is a misconception. The stadium is actually located one block to the east, in the Armour Square community area.
Bridgeport has long been one of the city's political hotbeds, having been home to five of Chicago's 45 mayors. They are, in order of service: Edward Kelly, Martin Kennelly, Richard J. Daley, Michael Bilandic, and Richard M. Daley. The most prominent example of the neighborhood's influence on Chicago politics is illustrated by a 46-year long stretch (1933-1979) in which a Bridgeport native held the city's highest office. The current mayor Daley no longer resides in Bridgeport.
Bridgeport is served by the Bridgeport News, a neighborhood newspaper delivered weekly on Wednesdays to homes throughout the neighborhood. The area is also served by two Chicago Transit Authority train stations, although one of them is technically a few blocks outside of the neighborhood.
Home to the Chicago White sox and U.S. Cellular Field (formerly Comiskey Park ), old churches, and some of the most beautiful architecture in Chicago , the Chicago neighborhood of Bridgeport is an older, family-oriented spot with historic roots. Chicago's former mayor Richard J. Daley made it his home throughout his life.
Once known as Hardscrabble, then Cabbage Patch, Bridgeport got its name because it was near a bridge on the Chicago River that was too low to allow boats to pass under it, so cargo had to be unloaded there. One of the founding neighborhoods of Chicago and once a center of industry, Bridgeport is now mainly residential and retains the feel of a real Chicago neighborhood.
A neighborhood rich with generations of history, Bridgeport is enjoying a degree of modernization as former residents who left the neighborhood looking for more trendy locations are moving back to where they came from, bringing their newly-acquired modern tastes, aesthetics and families with them.
