Brick home on Hillock street.
Chances are that this was originally a wood-frame home. Houses in Bridgeport have been improved bit by bit -- over several decades in many cases. Note that the lot to the right of the home is vacant and has been acquired as part of the home still here. There are several cases of empty lots next door to a home that have been recombined into larger lots. Some of the housing decline in Bridgeport, then, does not represent decay as some seem to imply. Examples such as this home, in fact, say the opposite. Like most old Bridgeport homes, this one is well maintained.
