Sharing and Caring Hands, as viewed from the ballpark site about a block away. Note transaction in progress in the shadows.
Secret entrance exposed!
Looking across the top of the B parking ramp. Notice that signage will block any attempts at seeing the game from up there. Also take note of the glassed in area which is part club and part office space for the Ballpark Authority.
Most of the main concourse is filled with construction materials...
The connection from the corner of Seventh Street and Second Avenue. You can now see where the little grassy area and franchise history board will be (the triangular area in the foreground).
Looking for some detail
Home Plate Box, Section 111, Row 8 or 9-ish (Click to enlarge greatly.)

This looks south and shows the track configuration for Northstar. The platform shown is just a placeholder. To the best of my knowledge, concept drawings for this platform have not been released. Keep in mind, this is NOT part of the ballpark project. It is completely separate.
That group was working on something very carefully, but I couldn't tell just what it was.
The blue line now indicates where the back of the accessible seating ends and standing room begins.
Loading dock -- already in use!
Wood-backed seats viewed through gate 6
Puckett atrium menu part 2 (Those prices match elsewhere in the ballpark.)
Bag checking at Ball Park Lanes was incredibly simple, as was the pick up later. The line was short and fast-moving.
Looking toward the Farmer's Market site from the balcony of the 573 Club at TF
An escalator was going in the day I was there.
That is the gun-metal gray wall of The Stadium just beyond the elevated tracks.
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.
Showing more of the context for the louvers.
Love the lighted, translucent panel
Not sure what those supports are for -- probably stadia.
Red is old Yankee Stadium. This diagram comes from FieldOfSchemes.com
Yes, son, Memorial Stadium used to be right there, just beyond those gates.

This looks toward the middle of the park. The third base side of the Legends Club is to the right up ahead, while the 573 Club is just barely visible at the end of the hallway. It extends to the left.
