I know this one!  It's a little concrete tiny porch with steps leading down to the sidewalk.  People sit and talk to their neighbors except when it's as hot as it's been the past few weeks.

I don't know in 'home construction' what that term might mean, but where I grew up back East in New England, a 'stoop' was like a 'front porch' Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers!  I will read replies below.
