Ballpark elevation viewed from Seventh Street. (Click to enlarge.)
4th inning in the nearly deserted Home Run Porch View Level in left.
This is one complicated streetscape.

This looks like a Twins Pub, but is actually the scoreboard operations.
Chef stand and menu in the Carew atrium
I didn't check the menu too closely, but it looks like all the standard fare is available, and not much of the non-standard stuff.
Detroit got this part right!
A classic profile on the horizon
Looking toward the Farmer's Market site from the balcony of the 573 Club at TF
Dome, what have you taken from us?
Skywalk over Seventh, looking back toward the parking ramp
Very interesting detail starting to appear here.
Suite level view
At Comerica Park, some aisles have railings and some do not.

Looking back toward the ballpark from Third Avenue and Fifth Street. Again, the track configuration is now clearly visible.
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.
Looking through the Oliva gate, you can see the outfield stands.
I was surprised at how close those upper deck seats seem. From the plaza, you feel like you can reach out and touch them. It really adds to the impression of overall compactness.
The outline of an infield has appeared on the asphalt in advance of the ground-breaking on Thursday night.
You have to wonder just what happened here. Will it remain forever embedded in cement?
Another classic space in the making above the Hrbek gate.

The Hennepin Grille appears to feature chicken, brats, and fries.

Yes, son, Memorial Stadium used to be right there, just beyond those gates.
I meant to include this shot the other day. It's the new LRT bridge being built next to the remaining half of the Fifth Street bridge. The new half is almost TWICE the width of the portion torn down. And the other end runs right into a HERC administration building! (Click to see the view from nearly the same spot about 85 years ago.)
