Concept drawing of Coomer gate (click to enlarge)
A very busy place, as viewed from Target Center.
Now we know what the English phone booths were for...
A sharp-eyed reader caught me trying to make the best of a bad situation with my SP-570UZ on Sunday afternoon
Another view of the escalator, which apparently comes preassembled!
Best view available from the "B" ramp.
The Lincoln Saltdogs (and a promotional Nerd)
Glass going in over the Oliva gate.
Catwalks provide access to the View Level seats (from the Ballpark Authority July update)
Section 101, Row 34
Circulation building with construction team on top
The former Ford manufacturing plant (now Ford Centre).
Now looking north, the tracks emerge from beneath Seventh Street as freight tracks only. The Northstar line ends at the northwest corner of the ballpark. One day, however, you can bet that other passenger trains will approach from the southwest metro on these tracks -- if our legislators are smart and persistent, that is.
4th inning in the nearly deserted Home Run Porch View Level in left.
Ballpark elevation diagram, viewed from Fifth Street. (Click to enlarge.)
Left field bench seating
I could gaze at this streetscape all day. It isn't perfect, but as a model for Minneapolis, I love it. (Except the Biff, of course. Click to enlarge.)
Looking back toward downtown from the end of the balcony
In case you don't know, that's Earl Battey.
The view from my seats in Section 237 (The Trap), Row 1 (can't see much of center field without standing up...)
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)
Sometime in the late 1980s: B ramp is under construction. Not yet built: Target Center, I-394 and the A ramp.
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!
A scene repeated about a million times each game
A spot that's always full!
The Puckett atrium fireplace is just barely visible at the far left.
The Pantheon (with inset of the magic eye)
The renderings and concept model differ here. MOJO thinks this is the perfect place for a party deck. Dave St. Peter seemed to agree!
The view from the Penn Ave entrance to 394 (and all the way into town! Click to enlarge)
Steel meets concrete, with the last rays of sun visible through the suite and concourse openings at left.
Look closely at the overhang. You'll see the on the right it is flush with the fence, and then it sticks out farther and farther as you move toward center. More fun for Michael Cuddyer.
Showing more of the context for the louvers.
OK, just how many servings per container?
