This looks up Sixth Street from Hennepin. Just imagine what this will look like during a night game!

Stairs wrap around the skyway escape tower. A very nice finishing touch.

In March, we were still only imagining baseball through those windows.
Open concourses do mean that you can glimpse the field no matter where you are, but not really the game.
I will take a picture of just about anything.
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.

I never think of Ron Jackson at all.
Not from Moose's tour, but it's an image you need to see. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Giant screened images! (573 Club, my back to Seventh Ave windows)
This concourse, the uppermost, was built on top of the now-hidden old concourse during the 70s renovation.

At the base of the B ramp, the foundation for the center field stands.
Also viewed from the B ramp, that's the upper deck in left field.
At left, across the tracks by that pile of dirt is where the Northstar commuter train platform will be built, and where Twins fans will apparently NOT be able to get a train after night games. (For reference, that's the Fifth Street bridge, with the ballpark site just beyond it. The east corner of Ford Centre is just visible at the right edge of the picture.)
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).
