B ramp glimpse
This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.
Uh oh. Schizophrenia.
Section 101, Row 27
Not from Moose's tour, but it's an image you need to see. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Banners on the parking ramp are a great touch. They help manage scale and turn a lemon into lemonade. On my way there today I passed the WCCO building and remembered how the Twins schedule used to be painted in giant form on the side of that building (which is no longer visible). Wouldn't that be a great thing to resurrect on the side of that ramp? A giant Twins schedule. I always thought that was cool.

Looking across the plaza toward the main ticket area.
Work in progress.
The knothole (sans view of anything interesting)

Lots of pix waiting to be seen from Bert's memorable night.
This is the HERC Premonade with railroad tracks snaking beneath. (I think this should be named the Halsey Hall Premonade. Seriously.)
Large staircases, a staple of recent Populous (nee HOK) projects, are all over the place.
Parking ramp knothole

From an earlier visit: Don't bother with those escalators either. They were also roped off. And how about a bench? Or a planter? Or even a trash can? That woman is doing the only thing she can: leaning up against a post to do her texting.
Flowers and Hall-of-Fame plaques. Very nice.
Lots of people are doing it.
Looking up Fifth, with LRT tracks and B ramp at left
"Hey look! There we are!"
Lots of self-portraits were taken here after the final out.
End of the line.
The rough outlines of our urban trench. (North is up.)
Saturday afternoon, KMSP-HD 720P
A look at Gate 34.
A slightly different elevation drawing, again viewed from Fifth Street, with some labels. (Click to enlarge.)
Friendly faces greet you right inside the door of the Legends Club.

The shade of the canopy gives way to a brief shaft of light. It would do the same again a short while later when the sun passed through that tiny open sliver between the View and Terrace levels.
