Legend's Club, Section E (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Legends Club fireplace (there are two)
The main concourse is a very busy place at all times.
Steps going up at Gate 29/Carew
Legends Club seats in context (above the main concourse, below the suite level)
I took this because of the view reflected in the store windows. (The store is cool too.)
A view into the Legend's Club

Purple flowers above Second Avenue
The canopy as viewed through the outfield stands. The lighting approach, despite what you may have heard, is actually very traditional.
Despite what those signs say, every one of these places was selling either snacks or Yankee memorabilia out of its front door. Do you suppose anything like this will spring up anywhere near the new Twins ballpark?
Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.
Stairs wrap around the skyway escape tower. A very nice finishing touch.
Delmon Young getting warmed up
This opportunity is half a block up Third Avenue and thousands of people walk right by before and after games.

Stairs down to the sidewalk from the skywalk over Seventh
A closer look at the bridge and walls. You can see where the tracks will be laid.
"Hey look! There we are!"
I know you've seen this, but I can't get enough of it.
Ketchup, mustard, relish, mustard, ketchup
Target Plaza in model form
Compare this picture, from the open house in March, with the one above and you'll see that some furniture reconfiguration has taken place.
The past is the future. Seriously.
