Looking for some detail
Viewed from the A ramp.
These guys were there, but it wasn't any of you, right?
Now looking north, the tracks emerge from beneath Seventh Street as freight tracks only. The Northstar line ends at the northwest corner of the ballpark. One day, however, you can bet that other passenger trains will approach from the southwest metro on these tracks -- if our legislators are smart and persistent, that is.
The closed concession stand.
Apparently, there will be public restrooms accessible directly from the plaza.
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.

Brick work just inside the opening matches the color of the limestone - per Jerry Bell's requirements.
A collection of support pillars for the left field pavilion.
I don't think this will remain a knothole, but the view is pretty cool.
A familiar view through the top floor elevator lobby window in ramp B (HRP View and Terrace).
The brick has been tinted where the circulation ramp meets the admin building.
This is an angle I have not used very much, from the top of the Fifth Street ramp. Because the wall is so tall (forget about watching a game from here for free -- OK, maybe with a step stool) I have to hold the camera up over my head and just snap, hoping I get something good. Here I did. This view then looks to the southwest.
Trees now line Seventh Street

Balcony of the Town Ball Tavern.
This will be a bar/restaurant.
The shade of the canopy gives way to a brief shaft of light. It would do the same again a short while later when the sun passed through that tiny open sliver between the View and Terrace levels.
Also warming things up are these planters.
Infield dirt used as accents
All three seating mounds
Note the gigantic -- and very permanent -- M's on the gates at the base of these stairs.
At the base of the B ramp, the foundation for the center field stands.
If you arrive by bus, your first glimpse of the park will be the scoreboard's profile. (Viewed from the bus station in the B ramp.)
