With the huge expansion of SHU, there has been a need for off campus housing for students. Many people are renting rooms out pretty easily to students, and because of that, home values are becoming quite inflated in that area. The eventual crash won't be pretty.

Not within a mile of SHU they aren't. They're skyrocketing in that area.

That's been going on for a lot longer than you think due to the relatively cheap housing prices of Bport. Why do you think in the 2010 Census Bridgeport gained population for the first time in over half a century? Also (going back to a post in this thread I originally made a year and a half ago), I had learned that many of those students originally lived in Yonkers, Mt. Vernon, the Bronx, northern Manhattan, etc.

In some cases, it was the third or fourth move in a "pattern", first from the above areas to Stamford or Norwalk (or even to Stamford and then to Norwalk), then from there either east to Bridgeport or north to Danbury.

Thanks for your help
This is not a great area. Not horrible but I personally would not buy there. You should be looking at the North End which is generally the area west of Main Street and north of North Avenue (Route 1). Jay

Voight is in the North End(06606 Zip Code). I do need to caution you about making recommendations regarding Bpt. neighborhoods. It's apparent that you haven't lived in Fairfield for some time now, as the recommendation of "north of Rt.1" and "west of Main" may have been applicable 15 years ago, but it certainly is not today. The pockets of "good" neighborhoods in the city have rapidly shrunk in the last 5 years. Sad, but true. I'm not trying to attack you here. I just don't want to see someone make a mistake based upon past perceptions.

I would say north of westfield ave is the better and west of Main St, some little okay spots off main st within 2 blocks when u by CVS, Cablevision on Upper Main St.

Yet, if a black person started this thread asking about black neighborhoods to live in, it would be perfectly acceptable.
