This is the start of construction on the Northstar platform which will feed under the bridge and to a lobby with escalators and elevators just inside the ballpark's public concourse. Compared to the ballpark construction, this looks kind of puny. But the work just to get the trains to come has been positively Herculean. Future generations will look back at this with awe.
The gate has grown a row of sponsorship
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
Frost on the pumpkins, snow on the plaza
Home Run Porch Terrace
Looking the other direction, again from Ford Centre, you can see what's going on over the tracks. This will be a public promenade.
I had to hold the camera as far over my head as I could to get this shot, in which the infield is finally visible. It's a spot made for your average Timberwolves player.

Compare this picture, from the open house in March, with the one above and you'll see that some furniture reconfiguration has taken place.

The Polo Grounds (left) and Shibe Park (Connie Mack Stadium)
Today's late-inning office.
The view down Sixth Street toward the ballpark site. A pedestrian bridge will extend this street right into the main entrance of the park. The regrettable facade of Target Center is on the left. Butler Square is on the right. Click on the image to see what it looked like on this very spot about 100 years ago.
