Then you turn around to this!

That group was working on something very carefully, but I couldn't tell just what it was.
The walkway under construction in the parking lot just outside the loading dock.
Fun with section counting!

Flowers and Hall-of-Fame plaques. Very nice.
Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.
Many people will approace the park from this direction and it's a pretty great first glimpse. It features all the design elements in modestly condensed form, and still manages to look like a ballpark (instead of something else).
