Stoop parties are definitely a thing here. Entire BBQs happen on and around building stoops, intense chess tournaments are fought and won, even marriage proposals take place on the stoops of Queens, and you’re likely to witness a few come springtime. If you’re not lucky enough to have a stoop of your own attached to your building, you better make friends with your neighbors or risk not having somewhere to hang during the warmer months.
