Stepping inside the circulation building
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
This looks south and shows how the Northstar tracks are sheltered by the promenade above. This is the side which faces the HERC plant.
You write the caption...
Here's a curious little room at the end of the circulation ramp. What could they be selling there?
In the foreground you can see the supports for the plaza as it will meet the corner of North Seventh Street and Third Avenue North.

Viewed from the A ramp.
Saturday afternoon, KMSP-HD 720P
The Metrodome is converted to its football configuration after the Twins game on August 29, 2002
The tower is actually finished, though it looks like a work in progress.
The base of the old Met Stadium flagpole. (The plaque refers to the "Flame of Freedom" and not the origin of the pole.)
This looks up Sixth Street from Hennepin. Just imagine what this will look like during a night game!

From the Downtown Council's 2025 Plan, a Metrodome "Revelopment" and a strong indication of where they think a new Vikings stadium should go.
The walkway under construction in the parking lot just outside the loading dock.
On this day, George was handling fruits and veggies right inside gate 34.
Detail of Entry Plaza #4 (north entry from Fifth Street)
The tracks on the right will be moved to the newly-cleared area on the left. The edge of the ballpark will be about where the rocks and dirt meet.
