What Bert Has To Say About Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk Metro Area

The most recent Metropolitan Area created some major shifts in Connecticut, where metro areas are more closely aligned by county borders than towns and townships as in the old New England structure. As a result, two important and highly diverse metro areas, Danbury and Stamford-Norwalk were merged into this now very large and complex Bridgeport area. Formerly a whaling port, Bridgeport itself grew up as an industrial and manufacturing center known for large machinery and brass products. Some of this heavy industry still remains, but general industrial decline has left considerable areas of blight.
