Here it is from Jersey City yesterday. All of the surrounding buildings seem to point right at it.

Hey! the "Corset Tower" was built! No, wait; 1 WTC was modified to fit Bloomberg's fitness and weight loss craze!

From this angle you can see that cladding is just reflective, the color depends on the reflexion.

The reason why some people say the base cladding looks green/blue is because it frequently looks green/blue in photos.

While the perceived color is largely dependent on the image being reflected, the glass does seem to have a different tint than the rest of the tower. Some of this could be due to the underlying metal. However it isn't illogical to theorize that the glass isn't identical and thus could have a different tint.

Actually, its got a slight silver tint in it. The main tower's glass is completely reflective, but the base cladding is silver. Still, I don't know how green and silver can be confused...
