Viewed from up Sixth Street, the tip of the canopy looks like the claw of some gigantic crustacean!

The start of the VIP entrance and loading dock.
I meant to include this shot the other day. It's the new LRT bridge being built next to the remaining half of the Fifth Street bridge. The new half is almost TWICE the width of the portion torn down. And the other end runs right into a HERC administration building! (Click to see the view from nearly the same spot about 85 years ago.)
Standing, standing, standing.
Also viewed from the B ramp, that's the upper deck in left field.

Nine spots for hops bats.
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 opportunity is half a block up Third Avenue and thousands of people walk right by before and after games.

Some of Minneapolis' finest checking out the construction through a spot where a knothole will be one day.
This is the entrance behind home plate (not visible in the renderings which have been released). It shows that the upper deck is set back from the facade -- a very good thing if it remains in the final design.
