From the revised site plan, this is the configuration of Gate 34 Puckett.
Reverse view, now looking down Sixth toward the park. The Met Stadium flag pole will be right there!

Bag checking at Ball Park Lanes was incredibly simple, as was the pick up later. The line was short and fast-moving.
This is the HERC Premonade with railroad tracks snaking beneath. (I think this should be named the Halsey Hall Premonade. Seriously.)
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.
