This view is from the roof of a warehouse which stood where the A ramp is today. The HERC is now located where the tracks turned north (toward the top).
Nine spots for hops bats.
Future home of the Met Stadium flag pole

A skyway-level view down Seventh Street.
Section 117, Row WC (applies to all the back rows under the Legends Club seating)
