History of Stapleton

Surrounded by neighborhoods like Grymes Hill, Tompkinsville, Silver Lake, and St. George, Stapleton is one of the older areas near the waterfront, established during the mid-nineteenth century by the Vanderbilts. Although the piers were constructed in the 1920s and used as part of the Foreign Trade Zone, for the most part, the waterfront has languished and sat underused, until now. The rest of the neighborhood is a lively, eclectic mix of historic homes and properties, as well as newer buildings and businesses.

Stapleton has grown into its reputation as an artistic town with a diverse feel.

Bay Street is Stapleton's main commercial and retail district, providing residents with dining and shopping options. A short walk north on Bay Street takes you into St. George, a bustling, unique neighborhood situated around the St. George Ferry terminal. Stapleton has its own historic public library, and there are plenty of public and private schools both in the neighborhood and those adjacent to it.

Commuting is a cinch in Stapleton, thanks to an SIR stop just off Bay Street near the waterfront. Stapleton and Tompkinsville train stations are also close by. Lots of local buses run along Bay Street, Beech Street, and Canal Street, and most of them take riders to the St. George Terminal, where they can catch the free ferry over to the Whitehall Terminal in Brooklyn.
