"Hey, Ma, it says here we go in at gate 34. Must be all the way around on the other side!" Seriously, though, this is a really inspired idea.
This will be a great sight on game nights.
Looking up Sixth Street, now barricaded for plaza extension.
Reasonable (if not overly generous) leg room
The Puckett Atrium
This area will supposedly show the Twins chronology. Will it stretch back to 1901?
This little pathway snakes between the LRT tracks and the Environmental Services Building, emptying into the parking area surrounding the HERC. It could be for maintenance, but it looks more like it's for convenience.
OK, it doesn't really look like that at all...

Let's be honest and say that this promenade, which will face the HERC plant, won't be the most exciting part of the streetscape. It has to be provided for circulation reasons, but there won't be much to see unless vendors and other attractions take root here.
For those who have never seen it up close, that's what it looks like when steam comes out of the HERC plant.

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.
Now from the inside looking at the same area.
To the left, out of view, was a row of guys in very nice suits. Most I did not recognize.
That's Fifth Street (and a tattooed arm) in the foreground.
Special guests in the trees!
You won't see much sky from these seats, but you'll always be warm
The Ceremony (VIP in the crowd)
Section 101, Row 27
These two sections are within a few feet of one another.
Note that, even though the scoreboard appears strategically placed, it's the outfield stands which block any potential view of the field from this roof.
Target HQ main entrance. Ballpark resemblance? (Inset.)
In the foreground you can see the supports for the plaza as it will meet the corner of North Seventh Street and Third Avenue North.
Some of your fellow BPMers at a game in May of 2010 (we had almost the whole section)
