Limestone facing and flowers on the right field overhang
A closer look at the bridge and walls. You can see where the tracks will be laid.
At the end of the balcony you can see down the promenade.
Outside, lots of window space
This view, also from the same warehouse roof, shows the newly-rebuilt viaduct on North Seventh Street.
Reverse view, now looking down Sixth toward the park. The Met Stadium flag pole will be right there!
These are the outside tracks which go under the promenade
Just one lane of traffic and a couple of feet between the fence in right-center and the wall of the parking ramp!
Usher Anna hands out Homer Hankies
Looking down what was Third Avenue, and will be a freeway entrance ramp beneath the outfield stands.
The outline of an infield has appeared on the asphalt in advance of the ground-breaking on Thursday night.
You'll be able to park here for a quick stop at the Pro Shop or ticket window.
Just to the right, more ticket machines. These things are everywhere.
I don't exactly know what this is. A first-aid station? Concession office?
The Metrodome has sure been tarted up.
I see an opportunity in this view for an Abbey Road-style promotional photo! Mauer, Morneau, Nathan and Cuddyer walking toward the ballpark. The only question: which one takes off his cleats?
Selling exactly what they say they're selling.
Replays on the out-of-town scoreboard!
Heaters over standing room (the backs of the retired number circles visible above)
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.
The county of my birth!
Fifth Street louvers way up close
The action drew everybody to the top step. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
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).
A photo taken as my meter ran out.
Franchise history before Minnesota. (Click to enlarge.)
This will be a bar/restaurant.
The angle on the main scoreboard from the Batter's Eye is surprisingly good -- acceptable, at least.
