Directly above gate 6 "Oliva" on the Club level.

Main concourse, looking south toward the area behind home plate.
Just one lane of traffic and a couple of feet between the fence in right-center and the wall of the parking ramp!
A photo taken as my meter ran out.
Giant screened images! (573 Club, my back to Seventh Ave windows)
Now, THIS is just some guy who appears to be hanging out on the LRT tracks talking to himself.
I realized I've never shown how the walkway over Seventh Street meets the A ramp
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 final glimpse from the street of stadia installation along the left field line
Legends Club seats feature in-seat service
An early concept drawing for the site
Up there is where I plan to buy a lot of hot dogs. You can see the vending areas developing rather quickly around the completed portion of the upper concourse.
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
This is the HERC Premonade with railroad tracks snaking beneath. (I think this should be named the Halsey Hall Premonade. Seriously.)
A peek through a tiny gate.
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.
Large staircases, a staple of recent Populous (nee HOK) projects, are all over the place.
A little ground's crew action in the first inning the other night.

This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.
Someone please get those poor people a drink of water. (Gate 34, after the game had started)

If you want, you can ask those folks how the game is going -- and even get a little bit of info from the big screen (Grandstand)
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.
Looking for some detail
The reverse angle shows that the signage will only partially obscure views from the top of the ramp. The wall is pretty high up there, so you'll need something to stand on, but it appears that this is one of the so-called "knotholes".
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.
Ahh. Lunch in the admin building...
