Work going on under the steel.
Workers against green
Yep, that's real grass down there, son.
LRT at the ballpark
I don't know if the back side is also a test for materials, but it could be a hint of how the exposed steel supports will be finished. Or it could just be to hold up the stone.

Look closely at the overhang. You'll see the on the right it is flush with the fence, and then it sticks out farther and farther as you move toward center. More fun for Michael Cuddyer.
This is one complicated streetscape.

Steel going up fast.
More flowers, more pennants.
Ullger warms up.
This is where chain link is being replaced with fencing which matches the plaza
Infield dirt used as accents
A sampling of seats at Fenway Park
This would have been the HERC side, though it's unclear just how far over the plant the retracted roof would have gone. My fear was always that they would have to shorten the track and more of the roof would have stayed over the ballpark. The only good retractable roof is one which disappears when not in use. I don't think they could have realistically created such a thing.
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.
Griffith Stadium (notch visible in lower photo at far left)
What has been actually built so far is only a tiny subset of this vision.
Future home of the Met Stadium flag pole
Limestone facing and flowers on the right field overhang
Seventh Street windows
Trampled, repaired, and re-trampled grass
It looks like the Target-themed signage has spilled out to the surrounding area (this was taken from the entryway to the B ramp from Third -- the 394 entrance ramp tunnel)
Steps, skyway, and plaza intersect.
Killebrew taught, "Always make your autograph legible, boys."
Final pieces arrive
Good seats, but no scoreboard or sky.
A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.
