Lunch break at the top spot. (Grandstand)
The right field foul pole seen against a backdrop of Butler Square (itself a site of great significance in the history of professional baseball in Minneapolis)
The Hennepin Grille appears to feature chicken, brats, and fries.
Here's a correction: The LRT platform will actually be able to load outbound trains from both sides.
Target HQ main entrance. Ballpark resemblance? (Inset.)
This looks up Fifth Street (LRT train visible in the distance). This bridge is also being partially rebuilt (see next photo).

Carew atrium menu part 2
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.
Hubert's remains the only sports bar within site of the Dome after 28 years of its existence. It's a cautionary tale.
Mystery door on Seventh Street...
How many times did we water down our field as kids? More times than we played games, that's for sure!
The county of my birth!
I'll admit that this makes me nervous. It's pretty easy to step into the path of a train (which is true at various points along the line, but still...)
Off-topic, but this gigantic, cool, retro sign is just across the street from S&CH. Why? I don't know. Might look nice on top of one of those municipal parking ramps...
The Target Field grass, it turns out, will be green. (This is a photo representing the concept of grass only. The actual Target Field grass apparently will not contain dirt patches, weeds, or dandelions. Imagine that -- if you can!)
Looking back toward the ballpark from Third Avenue and Fifth Street. Again, the track configuration is now clearly visible.
