About Bridgeport and Connecticut
Connecticut is the southernmost of the six states in the region known as New England. The others are Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. It is bordered on the south by Long Island Sound, on the west by New York, on the north by Massachusetts, and on the east by Rhode Island. The state capital and third largest city is Hartford, and other major cities and towns include Bridgeport, New Haven and Stamford, with Bridgeport being the most populous.
The circus-promoter and former mayor, P.T. Barnum, was a famous resident of Bridgeport. He built three houses there, and housed his circus in town during winters. The first Subway restaurant opened in the North End section of the city in 1965, The Frisbie Pie Company was located here, and Bridgeport is credited as the birthplace of the Frisbee. The Connecticut River, Thames River, and ports along Long Island Sound have given Connecticut a strong maritime tradition, which continues today.
The state also has a long history of hosting the financial services industry, including insurance companies in Hartford and hedge funds in Fairfield County. Although it is one of the wealthiest states in the US by most economic measures, the income gap between its urban and suburban areas is unusually wide.
