Here's the view as you step to the front of the outer moat beyond first base.
Noah is checking out the ample leg room and truly exemplary sight lines.
Oh, a flag pole will be so much more...dignified
The view down Sixth Street toward the ballpark site. A pedestrian bridge will extend this street right into the main entrance of the park. The regrettable facade of Target Center is on the left. Butler Square is on the right. Click on the image to see what it looked like on this very spot about 100 years ago.
Awesome seat. Awesome sun. Awesome hitter. (Photo by Tony Voda, courtesy Jared Wieseler)
This is the view from where the plaza will connect to the walkway on the west side of Target Center. This presumably aids traffic flow back to the A ramp, and perhaps to the skyway connection (though the doors to the skyway right there are typically exit only).

Love the lighted, translucent panel
Also warming things up are these planters.
Complicated pedestrian crossing
The images on that wall appear to be of great Twins moments in history.
This area will supposedly show the Twins chronology. Will it stretch back to 1901?

I finally found the corner of TF dedicated to the Senators. What a wonderful sight.
The media had some beautiful foliage to use as a background.
This is also the promenade, where the first indications of the final texture of the walkway can be seen. This layer of concrete is going on top of gravel (as has been done over on the plaza).
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
A look at Gate 34.
This shows the area where the Northstar platform connects with the ballpark (that translucent oval). Above that is the area which will house the Twins operations offices.
I was surprised at how close those upper deck seats seem. From the plaza, you feel like you can reach out and touch them. It really adds to the impression of overall compactness.
