One of the oldest waterfront neighborhoods on Staten Island, Stapleton was built in the 1830s on land previously owned by the wealthy Vanderbilt family.  The newly upgraded waterfront offers a mix of parkland and views of both lower Manhattan and the Verrazano Bridge.

In Stapleton, vibrant street art and multicultural shops are the norm.  It’s home to New York City's only indoor skatepark open to the public.  The launch of the Staten Island MakerSpace has solidified the neighborhood as a hub for artists, entrepreneurs, and anyone with a knack for creativity.

Stapleton surrounds historic Tappen Park, giving it a distinctive town-square feel, and lays claim to a diversity of restaurants, including an American-style diner and a Gastropub, as well as Sri Lankan, Mexican, and Italian eateries.
