Peering through Gate 34
The glare problem.
Note that, even though the scoreboard appears strategically placed, it's the outfield stands which block any potential view of the field from this roof.
Clyde Doeppner proudly displays colored bricks he scavenged from the Met during its demolition. These are the colors in question!

Look at all those flag poles! But wouldn't the one from Met Stadium look great just inside the gates in the middle of that entrance plaza?

Most of the main concourse is filled with construction materials...
20 minutes to get from our seat to the street. Miss this place? Nah.

This would have been the HERC side, though it's unclear just how far over the plant the retracted roof would have gone. My fear was always that they would have to shorten the track and more of the roof would have stayed over the ballpark. The only good retractable roof is one which disappears when not in use. I don't think they could have realistically created such a thing.
Desolate. Dirty. Mysterious. Expensive. Unlikely.
Not from Moose's tour, but it's an image you need to see. (Click to enlarge greatly.)

I'm too short to see over that wall. How about a little platform or something?
This is the plaza as viewed from the A ramp.
This is the start of construction on the Northstar platform which will feed under the bridge and to a lobby with escalators and elevators just inside the ballpark's public concourse. Compared to the ballpark construction, this looks kind of puny. But the work just to get the trains to come has been positively Herculean. Future generations will look back at this with awe.
