Steelpointe is bordered by the Yellow Mill Channel to the east and the Pequonnock River to the west with the Long Island Sound on its southern edge and I-95 and the city’s East Side to the north. It is an ideal location on Long Island Sound, positioned about an hour to Port Jefferson Long Island on the ferry and about an hour to New York City via Interstate-95 or the Metro North Railroad.
Shipbuilding began on the banks of this area in the early 1700’s and by the late 1800’s, the peninsula was booming with commerce. The name “Steel Point” is derived from “Bridgeport Steel Works” that was at one time located at this site. In the 1900’s, Steel Point was home to marinas, shellfish and maritime businesses, and the residences of those who sailed the sound and the trades that supported them. The City of Bridgeport spent the past several decades preparing the area now known as Steelpointe Harbor for development. Steelpointe Harbor is the rebirth of a past engine of water dependent and water related commerce essential to the future development of the largest city in the State of Connecticut.
