This is from inside the B ramp, where an entrance to the plaza will one day be
Mystery door on Seventh Street...
This is where the plaza meets First Avenue

The saddest event
The county of my birth!
Looking back toward the ballpark from Third Avenue and Fifth Street. Again, the track configuration is now clearly visible.
The circulation ramp on Fifth Street is shaping up very quickly.
Team pennant. (Click to enlarge.)
Love the lighted, translucent panel
Section 237, Row 15 (top of the Trap)
I set up my late inning "office" at the drink rail behind section 206
A path for workers -- don't touch the plaza! -- in front of three giant Chia pets
No arches. No brick. No girders. Classic.
Stairs and escalator down to the platform
More of a bird's-eye view of the same area.
A sidewalk has sprouted between the HERC and the LRT tracks!
Looking up toward Seventh Street.
The entrance at Gate 3.
After the rain. (We were in the wrong spot to see the rainbow...)
The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...
I finally found the corner of TF dedicated to the Senators. What a wonderful sight.
Pawlenty makes it official!
I have no idea what this is or does, but as gear goes, it's totally boss, man. (Attached to a railing just off of the Trap)
Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!
