The Polo Grounds (left) and Shibe Park (Connie Mack Stadium)
The same section seen from Target Center. Yep, looks like bridge supports.
Clyde Doeppner proudly displays colored bricks he scavenged from the Met during its demolition. These are the colors in question!
A peek through a tiny gate.
This is what passes for imagination at Miller Park -- they didn't even get the shape right! (Source: LP)
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).
This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.
A close-up of the rooftop party deck.
Um, I think that guy is out.
The plaza as viewed from across the park. The right field overhang section will be built just in from where the plaza supports are.
The view from our seats. I took this picture while standing, and the railing would prove mildly problematic when I sat down -- but not as much as my scorecard, which I always seemed to be holding right in Vic's view of the plate (she told me so).
Construction of the stands is moving from left to right in this image.

This is the Carew gate covered in plastic.
Preparations underway (Field View)
The outfield stands taking shape.
The louvres on Fifth have been completely filled in
The wooden louvers are in on Fifth Street
Knothole non-view #1
The heretofore unseen north facade (click to enlarge). Does it look like a ballpark? And what's with the bamboo?
The plaza as seen from the B ramp.
This is the Suite Level. There are multiple suites between each pillar, and there will be seating on the area in front of the suites which currently looks like it could be a walkway.
Today's late-inning office.
Directly above the ceiling here is the hidden concourse which served the upper deck prior to the renovation. That concourse was closed off to the public, but became a service level for ballpark employees. It's one of the many quirks which will be lost when the wrecking ball takes the place away.
