This station opened on July 31, 1884, with the extension of the SIRT from Vanderbilt's Landing to Tompkinsville.[1] Stapleton was rehabilitated in 1936.[2]

The station has an island platform and two tracks. The north end has an exit to Prospect Street and a New York City Department of Transportation Park and Ride facility to the west side of the right-of-way (next to Bay Street).[3] The south end exits to Water Street and Bay Street.[2] South of the station, yard tracks can be seen entering the line on the Saint George-bound side.[4] This is the connection to the Clifton Yard, and where the railway cars are moved to and from the New York City Transit Authority system by truck.
