Beauty or soul is all in the eye of the beholder. I found Stuyvesant interesting but found the multiple number of identical buildings gave it a soulless feel. I noticed that it has a lot more life to it now, then it did when I first saw it in 1994, but still just from a looks perspective, it doesn't feel like much soul.
