"Massage" Parlors Closed

We are super excited by the response we had to our last issue of the BI! Thanks so much for your feedback, your contributions and spreading the word!

We think the last issue had a greater impact than we ever could have imagined. The Bridgeport Red Light District Crossword Puzzle and the Massage Parlor Wordsearch might have caused some controversy and action. Since the last issue came out three "massage" parlors have closed on Archer Avenue.


We want to thank our community leaders for shutting down some pretty shady businesses. And we applaud your efforts on making the neighborhood safer for women.


  1. Wow, institutionalized South-side naughtiness brought down by neighbors giving a damn about the community!? Who knew such a strange idea worked in "Modern" America.

  2. What the fuck business is it of yours? These women are here of their own volition. Many may not be legal, but I'm sure that doesn't concern you. Anyway they all seem to be up and running at the moment. One of the only truly interesting things about this godforsaken neighborhood.
    Sincerely, Erik Berry eb3320gmail.com
    P.S. I know I'm a few months late in response, but I just saw this piece, so fuck it.
