- 0Apr 25, '06 by barbyannI have lived in Fairfield County my whole life and lived in Bridgeport for five years in the late 80's. Bridgeport has some very nice neighborhoods, but if you don't know the area you have no way to know what you are getting into. Truth is the public school system in Bridgeport is a disaster right now. Taxes are very high there also. Trumbull, Monroe, Shelton, Fairfield, Devon are all good towns to look at for a residence. I have had multiple opportunities to use Bridgeport Hospital for my healthcare and I can say without a doubt it is a good hospital (though they have a bad cockroach problem).
- 0May 25, '06 by SlpaskYou have alot to consider...I live in trumbull. It is a very nice town extremely close to the hospital (15 minutes). As towns in the Bridgeport area are concerned Trumbull is much more affordable than Fairfield. Schools are great in either town. By the time you consider the high taxes in Bpt and the fact that you'll probably have to enroll your kids in private school. Bridgeport won't be a consideration.
My wife and I grew up in this area and either town is great. Great community, very comfortable, people are friendly. Trumbull offers public pools. Fairfield has the beach. It is nice to live so close the NYC but be a world away from it at the same time.
You might want to consider renting for a while until you get comfortable with the area and where you and your family would be most at home.
