Shh. Don't tell those people working behind the ticket windows about these automated ticketing machines (underneath the plaza stairs)
Detail of Entry Plaza #4 (north entry from Fifth Street)
An escalator was going in the day I was there.
I love views like this. They show just how much Target Field shimmers. (Photo by Jeff Ewer)
An alternate route into downtown. (Click to get an interactive map.)
A mass of rebar and complicated cable runs ready for a pour.
The heretofore unseen north facade (click to enlarge). Does it look like a ballpark? And what's with the bamboo?

Ahh. Lunch in the admin building...
The first passengers are about to arrive, but the switch is set for the wrong track (those guys walked all the way out to correct it)
Peering through Gate 34
Catwalks provide access to the View Level seats (from the Ballpark Authority July update)
One more time from the third base side.
This is the Seventh Street circulation ramp. Note that the floor is covered with plywood to protect it during construction. Not all construction firms are as careful with this type of protection as Mortenson.
Pawlenty makes it official!
Signature elements. (And they wonder why we think the real trees look so small...)
Gate 29 Carew
The start of the VIP entrance and loading dock.
Condiments! (complete with faux limestone on the cart -- nice touch)
That is pretty close... (Grandstand)
The Hrbek gate is directly below. It's a lively place after a game.
At one point, we thought these windows might represent one of the so-called knotholes. But nope. Nothing to see here. (Nearest I can tell, there will be no view of the playing field whatsoever from the Seventh Street sidewalk.)
It's a great view of the action, though standing here is somewhat discouraged.
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
A view into the park down Sixth Street from just beyond Hennepin. Note that one side of the street contains century-old, classic buildings -- structures which are likely to last another century or more. The other side, not so much. (Click the image to see what it looked like from exactly the same spot 97 years ago.)
Wayfinding within the B ramp is still a work in progress.
