Mussina's first pitch. (Playing 3rd: Not A-Rod)
On this day, George was handling fruits and veggies right inside gate 34.
Left field bench seating
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of Seventh Street (looking west away from downtown). It's inviting, not imposing, and remarkably dignified.
Note reflected sunset (7:30 PM). Could be a worry...

Roped off for the LRT crowd
The circulation ramp on Fifth Street is shaping up very quickly.
The ballpark development area expanded by 1000 feet in each direction
A look at Gate 34.
A true fan out in the bleachers
A mini-freeway! (Police action in progress...)

Flag poles, fencing, main entrance gates
The Carew lounge was all ready for some corporate event.
This is the Metropolitan Club as viewed from the future Ballpark Authority office space.
Banners on the parking ramp are a great touch. They help manage scale and turn a lemon into lemonade. On my way there today I passed the WCCO building and remembered how the Twins schedule used to be painted in giant form on the side of that building (which is no longer visible). Wouldn't that be a great thing to resurrect on the side of that ramp? A giant Twins schedule. I always thought that was cool.
A Hrbek tribute wall marks the end of the Carew side of the club

This is the start of construction on the Northstar platform which will feed under the bridge and to a lobby with escalators and elevators just inside the ballpark's public concourse.

More of a bird's-eye view of the same area.
