This looks south and shows how the Northstar tracks are sheltered by the promenade above. This is the side which faces the HERC plant.
Bag checking at Ball Park Lanes was incredibly simple, as was the pick up later. The line was short and fast-moving.
The Ron Coomer corner features a bar.

Giant screened images! (573 Club, my back to Seventh Ave windows)
The louvres on Fifth have been completely filled in
These openings will facilitate access to the catwalks which run throughout the canopy.
Discovered on the upper concourse!
This little item stands just to the south of the site, where the volleyball courts used to be. It has to be related to exterior finishing elements, which means this is the first glimpse of the actual stone to be used. Very buttery.
This is the last hope for so-called knot-hole views. I'm skeptical.
This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.
Gate 3 ticket window
The Hrbek gate is directly below. It's a lively place after a game.

This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
The storage tunnel is barely visible at left behind that guy.
The rules were clearly posted next to this new entry point on the Seventh Street side. I have no problem with the rules!
Ballark Authority members listen to the LEED introduction

A desolate Marquette Ave
Here's the view of the entrance ramp to 394. Looks like they are painting...
Viewed from the A ramp.
This is during halftime.
A distinct misstep, ostensibly to guard against missteps. But methinks I smell a lawyer...
Looking from the middle of the third base side back toward the entry door
Hey! An unnumbered gate!
