Black Rock Featured in New York Times

The Black Rock section of Bridgeport was featured in the Real Estate Section of the New York Times on Sunday, December 25, 2016.  This time the NYT used the boundaries as defined by the NRZ to delineate Black Rock from the rest of Bridgeport.  This means that Black Rock ends at I-95 and right after Captain's Cove.  The article described a dense, walkable neighborhood with a down-to-earth niche of diverse, community-minded residents.  The Black Rock Farmers Market was mentioned.   The market is open on Saturdays from June through October, and has expanded to include artists and music.

New Developments in Black Rock - Black Rock Bank and Trust Building

The former home of the Black Rock Arts Center, at the corner of Brewster Street and Fairfield, is now under development.  It was purchased by T & N Properties of Norwalk, who plan to turn the building into 15 market rate apartments.  There will be ground floor commercial space, but no word on what kind of business will occupy that space.  There will be one, two, and three bedroom apartments.
