Typical SRO view upstairs.

Just to the right, more ticket machines. These things are everywhere.
Mystery door on Seventh Street...
Looking down Sixth Avenue toward the plaza
Tony Oliva, R. T. Rybak and Mike Opat
Playing surface dirt out there? Maybe. (click to enlarge)
The view through a construction "knothole".
This view clearly shows the curve in the left field stands and the relationship of the first row with the playing field (no overhang to speak of in left).
The finished product.
The Target Center rooftop patio. Hardly glamorous, but a great view of the ballpark.

Today's late-inning office.
Knothole non-view #1
Section 331, Row 9
ATM-style ticket machines have appeared beneath the steps to the B ramp (you can also enter the B ramp directly by walking past the ticket machines)
Dude, this is NOT a multi-use facility.

The main concourse is a very busy place at all times.
Here's an idea of what these Loge Boxes are all about. That guy is a waiter with no fans to serve. They seemed to have one server for about every four boxes.
The outfield stands taking shape.
Wrigley Field. Paradise? Not from these seats.

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...
Limestone still dominates the Seventh Street walkway from a pedestrian point of view. But brick take over as you move upward -- a concession to cost, no doubt.
