The outfield stands taking shape.
The view down Sixth Street toward the ballpark site. A pedestrian bridge will extend this street right into the main entrance of the park. The regrettable facade of Target Center is on the left. Butler Square is on the right. Click on the image to see what it looked like on this very spot about 100 years ago.
A last look on the way out.
This will be a bar/restaurant.
Here's the Northstar platform.

Playing surface dirt out there? Maybe. (click to enlarge)
