TC caps everywhere! (Is that you?)
The glare problem.
That's Jacque Jones looking up in awe at the Great Greenness.
Rooftop scaffolding, for the wind veil installation?
Apparently, there will be public restrooms accessible directly from the plaza.
Here is one of the concept drawings referenced (but not shown) in the MPR story (conceptual ballpark at left, LRT tracks switched to the north half of the Fifth Street bridge, which is actually in all of the long-range plans).
I think this promenade over the railroad tracks needs a name. How about the Halsey Hall Promenade? (Please do not throw cigar butts onto the tracks!)
Big board, as viewed from section 327, row 9.
One half of those windows are well-used.
Polo Grounds from the south
This is where the main ticket office will be.
The rough outlines of our urban trench. (North is up.)
Many people will approace the park from this direction and it's a pretty great first glimpse. It features all the design elements in modestly condensed form, and still manages to look like a ballpark (instead of something else).

Looking toward the Farmer's Market site from the balcony of the 573 Club at TF
I never think of Rod Carew as a first baseman. But he was.

Pawlenty makes it official!
This little item stands just to the south of the site, where the volleyball courts used to be. It has to be related to exterior finishing elements, which means this is the first glimpse of the actual stone to be used. Very buttery.
