View level as seen through the Seventh Street circulation ramp
The brick has been tinted where the circulation ramp meets the admin building.
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of Seventh Street (looking west away from downtown). It's inviting, not imposing, and remarkably dignified.
Memorabilia on display in the Metropolitan Club
2014 Twins ASG promo bat.
Here's another view up Sixth Street toward where the plaza will meet First Avenue (it will hug Target Center all the way).
Polo Grounds from the south
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.
Sign installer dude
The proposed wooden screen covering the circulation ramp on Fifth Street (at left is the equivalent screen on Seventh Street).
7:32 PM Glare begins at about the left field foul pole.
The service entrance area in left-center, now with bench seating
Here's the entrance from the seating bowl. It's down the outer moat, just beyond the last of the Dugout Box sections.
Plaza overview from the A ramp
The stunning curtains, which skillfully evoke the architecture, keep the atrium from getting too hot in the late afternoon sun, simultaneously hiding the HERC.
The pink thing is a mascot. (Actually, with a damn fine mascot actor underneath.)
Looking the other direction, again from Ford Centre, you can see what's going on over the tracks. This will be a public promenade.
Desolate. Dirty. Mysterious. Expensive. Unlikely.
This guy at the Puckett atrium chef stand caught me taking the picture and said I should stop back later because he was "just getting started." I still don't know what he meant.
This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.
That's some scary-ass scaffolding, if you ask me.
Lots of folks working behind those ticket windows
The Overlook, as seen by outfielders
Spring of 1982 (click to enlarge greatly -- can you pick out Kent Hrbek?)
