Bench seating just off the plaza

Lunch break at the top spot. (Grandstand)
A beautiful, glowing sunset after the rain.
Also from the same lobby, other window, a view which will clearly disappear before too long...
Legends Club seats in context (above the main concourse, below the suite level)
7:52 PM It's nearing peak, and covering the stands behind third base.
Wrigley Field viewed while approaching on foot from the northwest
Saturday afternoon, KMSP-HD 720P
There's the opening through which the groundskeeping equipment will emerge (and disappear).
That's Tony Oliva checking out ballpark construction from the roof of Target Center.
Some brick work out in the centerfield pavilion.
Today's late-inning office.
This is the Suite Level. There are multiple suites between each pillar, and there will be seating on the area in front of the suites which currently looks like it could be a walkway.
Bike parking available along Second Avenue
I know these are giants bats with hops growing inside, but... Hmm...
A very busy place, as viewed from Target Center.
The first passengers are about to arrive, but the switch is set for the wrong track (those guys walked all the way out to correct it)
This is the actual entrance for Gate 6. Notice how close the seating will be. The back row of the lower deck will be mere inches beyond that inner support post.
Just so you have a reference, this is an LD ("low def") scoreboard (inset is what the controller probably looks like).
Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
Path of quick escape.
Here's the view of the entrance ramp to 394. Looks like they are painting...
The Legends Club retail store is just visible at the right of this picture.
Flowers and Hall-of-Fame plaques. Very nice.
Louver samples on display.
Then you turn around to this!
Fan number 3,030,673 came through this gate a few moments after I took this picture.
Signature elements. (And they wonder why we think the real trees look so small...)
I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.

Indications that club seating (the wider spaced areas above each dugout) will be a major presence in the lower deck
