Curious Blue Beams

While in New York City, I spotted this unusual structure and liked the pattern it created. The beams certainly are not there to hold the building together nor do they serve as a precarious fire escape.
Is it art or a memento of what once stood there?
Sorry to keep you in suspense, but I do not have any information about this location, although I am hoping someone out there knows to keep me from pondering.

Sure looks strange. Maybe it creates a visual effect when you look at the design far away.

It looks like something to hold up another structure that might sit in front of it. Maybe they're going to put something else up.

Most unlikely uses :

A fire escape of sorts.

Perches for birds.

A way to escape the building if there is a fire or EQ and the elevators are not working?

Very cool. I don't recall seeing that in NYC. Where is it located?

Catsynth, et al: This is from the artistic work of Frosty Myers called "The Wall" on the corner of Broadway & Houston. Let me know when you see it the next time you're in NYC.
