When Denver decided to build a new airport 25 miles northeast of downtown on what was then almost-untouched prairie, people wondered what would happen to Stapleton, the city’s original airport, and the largely industrial area around it. Well, wonder no more. Stapleton has become one of the most successful new urbanism projects in the country, full of not just families but singles and childless couples (both hetero and gay) who flock to the area so close to the city, but so full of amenities. And one of the greatest amenities is Northfield Stapleton, the shopping area just north of I-70, full of restaurants, entertainment venues (including a movie theater) and stores both independent and big-box, with tree-lined streets and plenty of places to sit and chat with neighbors.
