Newer housing on Eleanor street.
Eleanor street, along the same industrial strip as in the last picture, was also the location for residential uses. Here newer housing has been built, which has taken place in Bridgeport, piecemeal, in every decade since the housing boom of the 1880s. Most Bridgeport housing is in two-deckers, similar to the new ones here. Bridgeport also has a large number of single-family homes, such as the above home. For the most part, the scale of housing has followed this formula for decades.
