As the viewing angle varies, so to do the levels of transparency and reflectivity. From ground level, where the mesh appears before the sky, it appears translucent, like a semipermeable crown. When viewed from the adjacent skyscrapers of the Hudson Yard development, the mesh sits in front of unattractive plant machinery, and is much more opaque.
