The East Side neighborhood is located across the Pequonnock River from the Downtown and the Enterprise Zone, and is adjacent to the East End. With direct access to Bridgeport Harbor, and bisected by I-95 and the Amtrak/Metro-North rail line, the East Side is strategically located, but functionally divided.
Education and health care provide the largest number of jobs in the neighborhood.
The majority of housing in the neighborhood (67%) is multifamily, and is mostly renter-occupied.
The East Side contains the Pembroke City Historic District. East Main Street south of the railroad tracks is on the National Register of Historic Places.
