Looking up toward Sixth Street.
Night (about the 7th inning)
Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
The beautiful Promenade has become a sea of temporary barricades. (Smoker's Row outside the unnumbered gate)
Mound from the other side
Legend's Club, Section E (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Another view of the escalator, which apparently comes preassembled!
A portrait of the 573 Club.
Impractical, expensive, undeniably cool (Angel Stadium, source LP)
These outfield stands will likely remain visible to passersby.
Flag poles, fencing, main entrance gates
Some details are visible here, like the back of an escalator.
Reasonable (if not overly generous) leg room
This view, from the Minnekahda building (or possibly a predecessor), looks toward the right field corner. The City Market, at left, occupied the land where the B ramp and Target Plaza now stand (over I-394). And the Overlook now juts out just a little beyond where that driveway enters the railyard.

The same section seen from Target Center. Yep, looks like bridge supports.

Do you think somebody's already cooking hot dogs out there?
Finished product (Field Terrace)
The lone light standard and one of those "entry beacons."
Bronze glove delivered (awaiting installation) with Met flag pole horizontal behind the gate
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
Also from the B ramp entrance off of Third, a look up at the tiny crack between ballpark and parking ramp
Not from Moose's tour, but it's an image you need to see. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Lots of pix waiting to be seen from Bert's memorable night.
Ready for action.
Looking through it, you can see the outfield pavilion (upper deck at least).
