Looking down Sixth Avenue toward the plaza
The brown grass was left over from the first attempt at groundbreaking (canceled after the 35W bridge collapse)
Gate 34 Puckett
Usher Anna hands out Homer Hankies
The view from section 210
Detroit got this part right!
Jose Alvalade XXI Stadium in Lisbon, Portugal has towers much like I'm imagining to hold up our canopy while also making a bold statement on the horizon
Carew atrium menu part 2

This isn't a very good picture, but it is the current view of the inside of a suite.
The media had some beautiful foliage to use as a background.
Denard Span ready, in a swoop of sunlight.
Now, why is there horse shit on the street next to Target Field? (I saw it in two places. Mounted police maybe?)
The official ballpark development area
Here's a correction: The LRT platform will actually be able to load outbound trains from both sides.
I didn't check the menu too closely, but it looks like all the standard fare is available, and not much of the non-standard stuff.
The past is the future. Seriously.
Yep, that's real grass down there, son.
The green is a composite of the topmost seating areas in the new ballpark. The gray is a scale diagram of the Metrodome.
The start of the VIP entrance and loading dock.

Section 331, Row 9

Speakers spaced evenly among the lights
Hit gap, win suit!
The plate marker is just to the left.

Where you are, and where you can go.
Fun with section counting!
With the engine behind us, we got a real sense of how fast we were going by looking out the front (back) window
Limestone still dominates the Seventh Street walkway from a pedestrian point of view. But brick take over as you move upward -- a concession to cost, no doubt.
