The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...
Also warming things up are these planters.
Secret entrance exposed!
The storage tunnel is barely visible at left behind that guy.
Gate 6 Oliva, with the 573 Club looming large over it (I wonder how Tony feels about that)
Shh. Don't tell those people working behind the ticket windows about these automated ticketing machines (underneath the plaza stairs)

These are the footings for the staircase which will connect the plaza to the skyway.
Red is old Yankee Stadium. This diagram comes from FieldOfSchemes.com
There are some great banners on fencing down Target Way. I'm not sure just who sees them.
Those two empty seats in the front row are where we started the game.
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 spot that's always full!
Discussions in progress on some very brown grass...
The splendid view from the roof of the Minikahda building. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Bag checking at Ball Park Lanes was incredibly simple, as was the pick up later. The line was short and fast-moving.
Now from the inside looking at the same area.
A look at Gate 34.

This would be easy to miss, but I found it on a cart located directly behind the Batter's Eye seating on the upper concourse in center field.
Through the windows of the Metropolitan Club you can see one of the displays of Met Stadium memorabilia.
Here's a first view of the surprisingly spacious walkway on Fifth between the ballpark and the LRT platform.
The flowers don't have quite the fullness depicted in the original sketches (where they were positively overflowing), but they are quite lovely -- a great, subtle touch. And that's probably a very challenging place to grow anything.
