Bridgeport Chicago IL

Bridgeport Chicago IL Bridgeport Chicago IL Bridgeport was one of the first communities in Chicago and is still bustling on Chicago's South Side. Historically, much of the neighborhood was an Irish-American enclave.

In the 1830s, large numbers of immigrants from Ireland started settling in this working-class neighborhood. Many of the same Irish immigrants who helped build the Erie Canal later came to Chicago to work on the Illinois and Michigan Canal. Because of inadequate funding for the project, the State of Illinois began issuing "Land Scrip" to the workers rather than paying them with money. A large numbe

Hi Bridgeport Community! I recently left the hospitality industry. I graduated with a B.A. in Integrated Marketing Communications and a minor in Social Entrepreneurship In December of 2019. I have internship experience in event/programming, marketing, and public relations and have a passion for music, film, sports, social justice, and mental health advocacy. Please comment below or PM me if you know of any jobs in the area I may be a good candidate for. Thank you to everyone in advance. Stay Safe!
This goes out to everyone in Illinois on voting on a fair tax law. This part does not matter if you are a Republican or a Democrat. Do not vote for the fair tax law. The fair tax law if you actually read it. It state that they can raise your taxes when ever they want without a vote. The fair tax act is not to raise taxes on the rich it’s to raise taxes on the middle class and poor people. Because if you actually think about it if you raise taxes on the rich that maintains jobs for everyone that means we the middle and the poor class will lose out on jobs. Remember Barack Obama he chased away 400 million jobs. All because he text all of these manufacturers and a ridiculous rate. So please vote no on the fair tax law.
Thank you for adding me, let’s keep Bridgeport strong and let’s all support our local business.
Did they start yet?
