Located 11 minutes from downtown Bridgeport,
the North End
feels quiet and family-oriented. Single-family homes
line the blocks, and kids shoot hoops on the driveway or play in grassy backyards. Despite the suburban vibes, approximately one-third of households here rent. The market includes both apartments and houses, making it an attractive option for those new to the city.
Residents run errands and grocery shop on Main Street, which serves as the neighborhood's commercial center. For take-out, locals like the authentic Turkish fast food at Bereket. Festooned with Christmas lights, this hole-in-the wall favorite dishes up grilled kabobs and outstanding stuffed grape leaves, along with Turkish tea that customers crave. The North End's ample green spaces provide outdoor fun, including a playground at Puglio Park and wooded trails that run through the Elton Rogers Woodland Park. The Discovery Museum at Veterans Memorial Park entertains and educates with a learning center, planetarium, and outdoor ropes course.
