Bass Pro Shops: By Alex Gecan, Updated 12:56 am, Thursday, November 19, 2015
BRIDGEPORT — They came from all over. Some drove in for the sales. Others showed up only to take in the spectacle.
But by the time the doors finally opened at Bridgeport’s first mega-retailer, thousands of men, women and children had thronged over the threshold, passing under a five-story American flag with Interstate 95 traffic roaring by in the distance.
Many of them spent hours stamping their feet and rubbing hands against the dank — albeit unseasonably warm — November evening, wrapped in flannel, hooded sweatshirts, camouflage and business suits. Police officers on horses and on foot patrolled the parking lot, directing motorists and pedestrians.
Steelpointe Harbor: Steelpoint Harbor is an urban mixed-use development designed to embody the most desirable characteristics of a harbor-side neighborhood. A new public realm consisting of a network of streets, open spaces, water views and harbor side strolling. Entertainment venues such as hotels, Bass Pro Shops, and movie theaters together with a mix of residential, restaurant, retail and commercial uses creates a diverse, livable, pedestrian-friendly environment.
Frankie's Diner is open 24/7, all year long. Frankie's is convenient to I-95 and welcomes tour buses!
