Packed SRO beneath the notch.
The spruced up triangle really doesn't show much connection with the ballpark.
A Killebrew tribute covers part of the wall where the entry doors are located near the escalators.
Viewed from up Sixth Street, the tip of the canopy looks like the claw of some gigantic crustacean!

From behind the wind veil
Here's where I was when the alarm went off, and though the siren wasn't terribly loud, at least one guy is plugging his ears.
Snow-blowing the field
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.)
Killebrew taught, "Always make your autograph legible, boys."

A little more imaginative is the circulation building for Northstar.
The media all turned out!
The lot within the lot.

Lots of folks working behind those ticket windows

The connection from the corner of Seventh Street and Second Avenue. You can now see where the little grassy area and franchise history board will be (the triangular area in the foreground).
