South Side Outlet - Halsted Street: Bridgeport
This place is a dive, there's no doubt about it. But it seems rodent and pest free, run down as it may be. The paint on the walls is cracked and yellowed, showing plaster where it's chipped. A nasty shade of greenish-brown berber carpet lines the floor, messily tucked under base boards and extending on down the hall, which is equally in disrepair. The overhead lights flicker at times, which plunges the place into darkness momentarily since The front window is boarded up, the glass shattered from a drive-by that happened long ago and had just never been replaced.
The long and dank hallway extends from the far end of the first floor, plunging further and further into darkness as most of the lightbulbs are out and in need of replacing. It's furnished similarly to the lobby with shoddy, yellowed walls, nasty, bunched up carpeting, and a lack of windows. The apartment doors are of a semi-matching brown color to the carpet, the cheapest available and constructed hollow. Various sounds from the rooms themselves often echo out into the hallway, reverberating off its walls.
Some tenants put more effort into the rooms, trying to make the most of what they have. However, the basic apartment in Bridgeport Arms comes with cracked paint, water stains, and dripping faucets if the tenants don't make the improvements themselves. Each is equipped with a bed, a kitchenette, and a basic bathroom.
