Opening Day 2008 (By Currier & Ives)
The green is a composite of the topmost seating areas in the new ballpark. The gray is a scale diagram of the Metrodome.
The same section seen from Target Center. Yep, looks like bridge supports.

Off-topic, but this gigantic, cool, retro sign is just across the street from S&CH. Why? I don't know. Might look nice on top of one of those municipal parking ramps...
These images are found at the top of the staircase, which leads to the Suite Level.
Uh oh. A code of conduct. Clearly posted. I'm not gonna mention any names, but you know who you are... (Click to enlarge.)

Such promise. (Click to enlarge.)
Preparations underway (Field View)
A trailer village has sprung up to the south.
Here's a correction: The LRT platform will actually be able to load outbound trains from both sides.
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
B ramp at left, ballpark at right (and visible far away through the tiny crack)
I don't exactly know what this is. A first-aid station? Concession office?
Midway Stadium (seen from our tailgating spot across the parking lot)
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.
An early concept for St. Paul.
It was in and then quickly out of his glove. You gotta make that play.
