Notable & Unique: Real Estate

waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Stapleton is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
