From last week, you can see the piers taking shape. I believe that the front row, visible here as just forms and reinforcing rods, is the front edge of the plaza.

Discussions in progress on some very brown grass...
Looking north (toward Fifth Street and the LRT station).
This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
Looking up Fifth, with LRT tracks and B ramp at left
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.
Click on this photo to see what it looked like on this spot 101 years ago (I'm not kidding)
Another view of the escalator, which apparently comes preassembled!
You'll be able to park here for a quick stop at the Pro Shop or ticket window.
Some of Minneapolis' finest checking out the construction through a spot where a knothole will be one day.
Here's a detail from the above image, showing the LED strips up close.
Main concourse, looking south toward the area behind home plate.
Directly above gate 6 "Oliva" on the Club level.
Heaters over standing room (the backs of the retired number circles visible above)
Go get 'em, boys!
The right field overhang as seen from Seventh Street (with dude)
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.

Gate 29 Carew (note the walkway above open to the street where you can shout down at your lost friends to tell them where to meet you)
The start of the VIP entrance and loading dock.

Now from the inside looking at the same area.
Ballpark elevation diagram, viewed from Fifth Street. (Click to enlarge.)
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
Doors directly to the concourse, and a view of the stands beyond
The finished product.
Best view available from the "B" ramp.
I finally found the corner of TF dedicated to the Senators. What a wonderful sight.
Future home of the Met Stadium flag pole
