The Ballpark Wall! (really stunning)
Clemson Memorial Stadium
That is the gun-metal gray wall of The Stadium just beyond the elevated tracks.
Oh, a flag pole will be so much more...dignified

Work has begun on the plaza, and the activity has started to impact I-394 traffic.
Citi Field as viewed from Shea.
Team pennant. (Click to enlarge.)
This view is from the roof of a warehouse which stood where the A ramp is today. The HERC is now located where the tracks turned north (toward the top).
Serious home dugout work in progress.
Up close, this is what you'll see as you walk along.
Also from the same lobby, other window, a view which will clearly disappear before too long...
T is for Twins
Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.

Train. (What is it about baseball and trains?)
I think this promenade over the railroad tracks needs a name. How about the Halsey Hall Promenade? (Please do not throw cigar butts onto the tracks!)
A very unique space
Scoreboard installation in progress
Time to paint those supports Vikings-purple.

A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.
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.

Reverse view, now looking down Sixth toward the park. The Met Stadium flag pole will be right there!

This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
Just so you have a reference, this is an LD ("low def") scoreboard (inset is what the controller probably looks like).
Here's a detail from the above image, showing the LED strips up close.
