The storage tunnel is barely visible at left behind that guy.

The louvres on Fifth have been completely filled in
This is an angle I have not used very much, from the top of the Fifth Street ramp. Because the wall is so tall (forget about watching a game from here for free -- OK, maybe with a step stool) I have to hold the camera up over my head and just snap, hoping I get something good. Here I did. This view then looks to the southwest.
B ramp at left, ballpark at right (and visible far away through the tiny crack)
Home Plate Box, Section 111, Row 8 or 9-ish (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Section 237, Row 15 (top of the Trap)
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.
Ye Olde Tyme Vegetable Cart (and its modern cousin)
Location for automated ticket machines
Here is one of the concept drawings referenced (but not shown) in the MPR story (conceptual ballpark at left, LRT tracks switched to the north half of the Fifth Street bridge, which is actually in all of the long-range plans).
Mary Larson (left), a music teacher from Maple Grove, was a TwinsFest SSB winner and got to sing the anthem before the game.
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.
Artist at work
Such promise. (Click to enlarge.)
This looks up Sixth Street from Hennepin. Just imagine what this will look like during a night game!
The shade of the canopy gives way to a brief shaft of light. It would do the same again a short while later when the sun passed through that tiny open sliver between the View and Terrace levels.
Better them than me
Fun with section counting!
Bike parking available along Second Avenue
The green in question (click for very large version)
Here's the barricade in context at the end of the walkway
This design has a rather generic quality to it, but they appear to have considered the B garage. Though it isn't part of the model, they've clearly left room for it.

At the corner of the Pro Shop.
A final glimpse from the street of stadia installation along the left field line
Train. (What is it about baseball and trains?)
