Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Stapleton neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
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.
In addition, corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the Stapleton neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 43.2% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 97.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Stapleton neighborhood, 15.8% of people ride
a ferry to work each day. This is a very high percentage compared to most places.
In fact, NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this is a higher level of ferry
ridership than in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, more people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 99.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Stapleton neighborhood has more
Spanish and Arab ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry and 2.8% have Arab ancestry.
Stapleton is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Arabic at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Stapleton
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Stapleton neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
11.9% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.5%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Stapleton neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
26.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
