An escalator was going in the day I was there.
At Comerica Park, some aisles have railings and some do not.
The splendid view from the roof of the Minikahda building. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Checking out the bike racks on the promenade.
Gate 29 escalators
Some brick work out in the centerfield pavilion.
Note reflected sunset (7:30 PM). Could be a worry...
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.

Ballpark elevation viewed from Seventh Street. (Click to enlarge.)
This is the outside portion of the Metropolitan Club.
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).
Bike parking available along Second Avenue
Of the players up there, only Bert does not have a gate with his number (28) on it at Target Field. You know, there is that door underneath the skywalk on Seventh Street between gates 14 and 29...

These two sections are within a few feet of one another.
A photo taken as my meter ran out.
A spot that's always full!
This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.

They help create a psychological safe area along the plaza edge, and help you forget that cars are zipping by directly beneath you.
Opening Day 2008 (By Currier & Ives)
The rendering which excited a fan base! (Inset is an enlargement of the pictured neon sculpture.)
Panels arriving on flatbed trailers in front of the Twins' dugout.
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.
A view from up (and in) the street.
Here's the view as you step to the front of the outer moat beyond first base.

This is the last hope for so-called knot-hole views. I'm skeptical.
Another piece of the neighborhood puzzle: the Northstar platform.
