There's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow! (I loved this place as a kid.)
The scoreboard terminates the view on Fifth Street as seen from Hennepin
This was billed as a diagram of a super-suite. I'm not quite sure just where this (or these) will be located.
This view clearly shows the curve in the left field stands and the relationship of the first row with the playing field (no overhang to speak of in left).
The plaza has been finished off just beautifully.

One more exterior view shows that, while the original look was attractive in a way, it seems to be a variation on the look of the Washington ballpark (albeit with a much more coherent collection of elements).

That's Noah and my brother, Chris, checking out the Loge Box amenities
More of a bird's-eye view of the same area.
That's Bert back at the Met on Photo Day, September 15, 1974.
A mini-freeway! (Police action in progress...)
