So far, Teague Bohlen has visited Stapleton, Highland, Five Points and Capitol with his series listing what makes residents of these neighborhoods really, really mad. And the comments continue to come in regarding his assessments of all the areas — especially Stapleton. Says Kevin:
Thank you providing an interesting forum on Stapleton. We've been here three years from Wisconsin and have found both arguments to be valid. Denverites are not as naturally extending as Midesterners, but warm easily to friendly conversation. There is an element of "Established" Stapleton that snubs noses at newbies. But this community is diverse and has a wealth of friendly, funny people.
Stay classy, Stapleton!
