The windows aren't blue, they simply reflect the color of the sky. The building will look different depending on the time of day, weather, etc. (it will look more gray if it's cloudy, stuff like that)

If you were to take this pic seriously, the tower is leaning towards the photog's location.

This is an amazing structure! I will venture to call it the country's first 21st century landmark! Go New York! No other skyline will ever compare (in quality and diversity)... Big props to the forumers keeping the world updated!
