Looking up Seventh Street to the west
This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
For those who have never seen it up close, that's what it looks like when steam comes out of the HERC plant.

I think AP is in there somewhere...
A view of construction from the B ramp. This looks toward Seventh Street, over what will be Gate 34 (the main entrance).

Once again, Noah is holding his ears because of the traffic noise.
This guy at the Puckett atrium chef stand caught me taking the picture and said I should stop back later because he was "just getting started." I still don't know what he meant.
A closer look into the park from down the street. How great will this view be during a game??

Limestone still dominates the Seventh Street walkway from a pedestrian point of view. But brick take over as you move upward -- a concession to cost, no doubt.

Now looking north, the tracks emerge from beneath Seventh Street as freight tracks only. The Northstar line ends at the northwest corner of the ballpark. One day, however, you can bet that other passenger trains will approach from the southwest metro on these tracks -- if our legislators are smart and persistent, that is.
TC gets ready to release the hounds. (Kids get to run the bases after Sunday games.)

The Metrodome has sure been tarted up.
You have to wonder just what happened here. Will it remain forever embedded in cement?
