Skywalk over Seventh, looking back toward the parking ramp
Life in the shadows
The lights went on, and it was a Good Thing
Catwalks provide access to the View Level seats (from the Ballpark Authority July update)
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.
Apparently, there will be public restrooms accessible directly from the plaza.
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
Section 101, Row 27
Fencing is going up all along the plaza
I was surprised at how close those upper deck seats seem. From the plaza, you feel like you can reach out and touch them. It really adds to the impression of overall compactness.

Waiting for a train. Reading on the promenade. How urbane.
This was actually taken from the top floor of the International Market Square.
These stairs will go up to the centerfield pavilion.
The process of building the canopy is really amazing to watch.
A scene repeated about a BILLION times each game

Lunch break at the top spot. (Grandstand)
From the roof of the B ramp, you can see just how futile it will be to get a glimpse of the action.
