Wrigley Field viewed while approaching on foot from the northwest
This little pathway snakes between the LRT tracks and the Environmental Services Building, emptying into the parking area surrounding the HERC. It could be for maintenance, but it looks more like it's for convenience.
Viewed from up Sixth Street (that's Target Center on the left), you can get an idea of how the connection is currently planned. As it stands now, the plaza will extend to that support pillar, from which a stairway will empty to the sidewalk below. If they get their wish, additional support structures will provide a walkway along Target Center which will gradually (without stairs) meet the sidewalk somewhere up near First Avenue.
What are they hanging over there?
The view from the Penn Ave entrance to 394 (and all the way into town! Click to enlarge)
The base of the old Met Stadium flagpole. (The plaque refers to the "Flame of Freedom" and not the origin of the pole.)
Here's what they do in April at Comerica Park
The glare problem.
Hops! (conceptual only)
They help create a psychological safe area along the plaza edge, and help you forget that cars are zipping by directly beneath you.
Um, I think that guy is out.
Guerrier had tossed a ball to a fan wearing a Twins jersey, who dropped it. If you're going to wear the uniform, he was saying, you gotta make the play. The ball ultimately went to a fan wearing a Randy Moss jersey, and everybody laughed.
I took this picture from the Overlook at great personal risk, because everything Thome was hitting was landing out that direction.
A view into the Legend's Club
You'll be able to park here for a quick stop at the Pro Shop or ticket window.
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of Seventh Street (looking west away from downtown). It's inviting, not imposing, and remarkably dignified.
Looking through it, you can see the outfield pavilion (upper deck at least).
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.
One of the many supports being built over the tracks.

Yep, that's real grass down there, son.

The scoreboard also towers over the LRT tracks, which now are functional (though not open) all the way to the park -- and beyond!
A new restaurant going in at Fifth Street and Second Avenue
Indications that club seating (the wider spaced areas above each dugout) will be a major presence in the lower deck

The Puckett atrium fireplace is just barely visible at the far left.
Up close, this is what you'll see as you walk along.
