Looking at pics from Christmases past I hit upon an idea - A variant of this building where the top was rendered as a large Rubik's Cube based upon the lighting of the windows! It could be interactive, to boot, as sightseers could pay to take a turn and propose a particular motion for rotating one layer! The game could last for decades! Think of the drunkards at 3 AM tossing in money - "No, no I got this, man! THIS time I got this!"

^ That shot from the plane is absolutely stunning. Just seeing the outlines of the Boroughs with the rivers and the Atlantic in the background, then looking up and seeing the different cloud layers. Just magnificent

So I am going to guess that peeling the protective window coating is going to be a job left for the first window-washing crew. Does that seem likely? I'm just eager to see the true color of the glass up and down the length of the tower. The blue look with the covers still on is pretty cheesy, but the couple exposed windows we've seen on the bottom floors look great.

Some windows on the lower levels have been uncovered for a long time. The glass is nice.

It should have to be called "the slimmest skyscraper in the world"
Of course, excluding all "needle"-shape skyscrapers, like Burj Khalifa

I feel quite proud that my fellow Rafael Viñoly is the creator of this new icon of NYC, giving uruguayan architecture a new reference in the world...
