Don't know whether this is of any help, but the terminal does offer quite a good view of some of the movements. The glass didn't seem to be tinted and it was actually pretty clean too. I shot this and was very happy with the result.

If you are flying on JetBlue then you will end up at gates number B40+, which is good. From there walk East towards Independence Air Terminal. Bridge between Terminal B and Indy Air its a good place to spend some time taking pictures. At least thats the best place inside the airport to take pictures.
Terminal B has best view of all. From that bridge you can take pictures of both sides. Nobody should bother you.
