The proposed wooden screen covering the circulation ramp on Fifth Street (at left is the equivalent screen on Seventh Street).
I never think of Rod Carew as a first baseman. But he was.
Here's a quick look into the layout of the Metropolitan Club.
Gate 29 escalators
A new restaurant going in at Fifth Street and Second Avenue
Staircase entrance. You cannot miss them.
Met Stadium on May 17, 1975 (Twins vs. Brewers featuring Hank Aaron)
Work has begun on the plaza, and the activity has started to impact I-394 traffic.
New Concept Drawing - No Roof

Scoreboard as viewed from Fifth Street.
Gate 6 Oliva, with the 573 Club looming large over it (I wonder how Tony feels about that)

New Year's Eve, 2008
At TF, you never know when you may bump into a Pohlad
Discovered on the upper concourse!
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.
A sharp-eyed reader caught me trying to make the best of a bad situation with my SP-570UZ on Sunday afternoon
