I believe that the truck is parked in one of the curb cutouts which are being installed to facilitate ticket sales and traffic calming.
A closer look into the park from down the street. How great will this view be during a game??
Night (about the 7th inning)
Let's be honest and say that this promenade, which will face the HERC plant, won't be the most exciting part of the streetscape. It has to be provided for circulation reasons, but there won't be much to see unless vendors and other attractions take root here.
Wrigley Field. Paradise? Not from these seats.
A seating bowl comes into focus. Note that the netting has been installed on the foul pole. (Field Box)
Delmon Young getting warmed up
Flowers. Real flowers.
A new restaurant going in at Fifth Street and Second Avenue
Now, THIS is just some guy who appears to be hanging out on the LRT tracks talking to himself.
The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...

The plaza has been finished off just beautifully.
The view from the upper concourse.
A mysterious smile from within a very deep planter!
Building the canopy is a spectacular sight.
The county of my birth!
Here's a first view of the surprisingly spacious walkway on Fifth between the ballpark and the LRT platform.
B ramp improvements are finally becoming usable. The doors lead to the plaza beneath the skyway steps.
Viewed from another angle, you can see that the bullpens now sit beneath the upper deck outfield seating.
Section 331, Row 9
Here's the Northstar platform.
Sometime in the late 1980s: B ramp is under construction. Not yet built: Target Center, I-394 and the A ramp.
Instrument of evil.
The brick has been tinted where the circulation ramp meets the admin building.
Also viewed from the B ramp, that's the upper deck in left field.
