Located in the northeastern section of Staten Island, the neighborhood of Stapleton borders the waterfront of Upper New York Bay, and is roughly bounded on the north by Tompkinsville at Grant Street, on the south by Clifton at Vanderbilt Avenue, and on the west by Grymes Hill at St. Paul’s Avenue and Van Duzer Street. Stapleton is one of the oldest waterfront neighborhoods in the borough, built in the 1830s on land once owned by the Vanderbilt family. Stapleton, like much of the Island’s north shore, has old, standalone homes that have been in the area since the Victorian era, as well as new developments such as condominiums and apartment buildings. Stapleton is also known for its vibrant street art, winding roads, used book stores, and coffee shops. The neighborhood also contains a huge diversity of restaurants, including an American-style diner, as well as Sri Lankan, Mexican, and Italian eateries.

The renovated building was reopened in 2013 with much fanfare and excitement from the neighborhoo
