Some of Minneapolis' finest checking out the construction through a spot where a knothole will be one day.

Home Plate Terrace -- really great seats; maybe my personal, budget-based favorite
A walkway begins to form (this is as close as you can get right now)
Just some of the lumiaries who turned out for the unveiling (Terry is clearly thinking about Sidney Ponson).
A few weeks ago there were sand volleyball courts here. When the park opens, this will be surface parking. Maybe one day there will be something more interesting built on top of that parking...

Apparently, there will be public restrooms accessible directly from the plaza.
A mysterious smile from within a very deep planter!

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.
Just think: It could look like this!
I suppose that one day my son will graduate from Mrs. Fields to Hooters. At least he won't have to travel too far. *Shudder*
No, that's not Kent Hrbek. It's catcher Glenn Borgmann.
End of the line.
Many people will approace the park from this direction and it's a pretty great first glimpse. It features all the design elements in modestly condensed form, and still manages to look like a ballpark (instead of something else).
A closer look into the park from down the street. How great will this view be during a game??
Millers fans leaving Nicollet Park after a game in 1923, where a trolley was waiting. (Click to enlarge.)
The circulation ramp on Fifth Street is shaping up very quickly.
This mural is behind the staircase. The window looks onto the promenade, and the door goes to a kitchen.
Legend's Club, Section E (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Here's another view up Sixth Street toward where the plaza will meet First Avenue (it will hug Target Center all the way).
Dedicated closed-captioning ribbon board
Now, why is there horse shit on the street next to Target Field? (I saw it in two places. Mounted police maybe?)
The Metrodome is converted to its football configuration after the Twins game on August 29, 2002

Wind veil framing (from the inside)
The main concourse.
No arches. No brick. No girders. Classic.
One of the many supports being built over the tracks.
