Nestled just north of the old stockyards, this working-class neighborhood's plentiful land and warehouses ripe for conversions have spurred a recent wave of development and given rise to a bustling arts district. Most notable is tony Bridgeport Village, set smack-dab on a stretch of the Chicago River known as Bubbly Creek, so-named for its gaseous stew made from the animal carcasses dumped in it by the former stockyards. Its banks now boast pricey homes, but the bubbles still linger.
Bridgeport's recent revival and vibrant arts scene have transformed the former sleepy residential community. The sole reason for coming to Bridgeport used to catch a White Sox game, but residents and visitors now head there to check out its hip coffee shops, art galleries and studios, and acclaimed eateries.
