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.
Looking from the doorway to the south, across Seventh Street
The Ballpark Wall! (really stunning)
This will be a bar/restaurant.
A Killebrew tribute covers part of the wall where the entry doors are located near the escalators.
Franchise history before Minnesota. (Click to enlarge.)
Opening Day 2008 (By Currier & Ives)
Oh, a flag pole will be so much more...dignified
Supports for the little sections in the outfield.
Grid for the ironwood louvres is in place
Detail of Entry Plaza #4 (north entry from Fifth Street)
Reverse view, now looking down Sixth toward the park. The Met Stadium flag pole will be right there!
Nuts on Clark (a couple blocks north of Wrigley Field)
At the base of the B ramp, the foundation for the center field stands.
Compare this picture, from the open house in March, with the one above and you'll see that some furniture reconfiguration has taken place.
Looking out from under Gate 34
This concourse, the uppermost, was built on top of the now-hidden old concourse during the 70s renovation.
Mussina's first pitch. (Playing 3rd: Not A-Rod)
And another angle looking at the overhang area of the right field pavilion. This looks to me like a great area to watch a game.
This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
Looking through it, you can see the outfield pavilion (upper deck at least).
Is it possible to take a bad picture of this building?
Here's the view from the main concourse out through Gate 3 "Killebrew".
One of those funny little sections above the entrance stairs
The view from our seats. I took this picture while standing, and the railing would prove mildly problematic when I sat down -- but not as much as my scorecard, which I always seemed to be holding right in Vic's view of the plate (she told me so).
Sharing and Caring Hands, as viewed from the ballpark site about a block away. Note transaction in progress in the shadows.
