Bench seating? (Click to see hi-res version.)
Section 237, Row 15 (top of the Trap)
The lone light standard and one of those "entry beacons."
Look beyond the gigantic hand (a hounds tooth jacket? really?) and you'll get a glimpse of the main grandstand configuration. The two (or is it three?) levels of suites are visible, as is the design of the so-called "split upper deck," and the extensive use of limestone for decorative accents. Let's hope these little touches don't get cut as costs increase, because they make a nice tie-in from the outside of the park to the inside. Of most interest to me is the way that the very best seats are physically separated from all the rest of the seats by that limestone. There will be virtually no way to sneak into these seats. On one level, that's a somewhat sad design feature...
Which way to the skyway? Really??
Let's be honest and say that this promenade, which will face the HERC plant, won't be the most exciting part of the streetscape. It has to be provided for circulation reasons, but there won't be much to see unless vendors and other attractions take root here.
Another view of the escalator, which apparently comes preassembled!
The county of my birth!
Stay warm while buying tickets.
Millers fans leaving Nicollet Park after a game in 1923, where a trolley was waiting. (Click to enlarge.)
Catwalks provide access to the View Level seats (from the Ballpark Authority July update)
The wooden louvers are in on Fifth Street
Killebrew taught, "Always make your autograph legible, boys."
The ballpark development area expanded by 1000 feet in each direction
8:02 PM It's at peak, affecting mostly the upper deck.
That's Bert back at the Met on Photo Day, September 15, 1974.
A timeline of design and construction of the ballpark. (Click to enlarge. Photo by Tyler Wycoff)
A walkway begins to form (this is as close as you can get right now)
The base of the old Met Stadium flagpole. (The plaque refers to the "Flame of Freedom" and not the origin of the pole.)
A photo taken as my meter ran out.
A peek through a tiny gate.
Dedicated closed-captioning ribbon board
This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.
This is what I was working on while my photo was taken (click to see a VERY BIG version).
Anna keeps the riff raff under control.
No arches. No brick. No girders. Classic.
