Looking the other direction, again from Ford Centre, you can see what's going on over the tracks. This will be a public promenade.
I still counted 11 flag poles...
Here is a close-up of those funny little islands of seats (HRP View).
The base of the old Met Stadium flagpole. (The plaque refers to the "Flame of Freedom" and not the origin of the pole.)
Here are some less intrusive things things you can actually get at the ballpark.
Ben took this picture of me (carrying my mostly useless camera) and Twins rep Chris Iles down by the admin building
Looking back toward the park from just beyond the north end of the Northstar platform.
Look at all that blank space. Canvas! (What should go on those walls? A giant schedule perhaps?)
This mural is behind the staircase. The window looks onto the promenade, and the door goes to a kitchen.
Supports for the little sections in the outfield.
The big glove will go on that circle. Note the gap between the plaza and the ramp. That's 394 you can see through there.
Viewed from a different angle, it seems fair to wonder is some of those seats will have slightly obscured views. Yet, if they're cheap, that's not a problem.
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.
Detail of Entry Plaza #4 (north entry from Fifth Street)
Notice the temporary railing extensions
A look at Gate 34.
That is the gun-metal gray wall of The Stadium just beyond the elevated tracks.
Looking out from under Gate 34
Here's an idea of what these Loge Boxes are all about. That guy is a waiter with no fans to serve. They seemed to have one server for about every four boxes.
Target Plaza in model form
Viewed from up Sixth Street, the tip of the canopy looks like the claw of some gigantic crustacean!
Sharing and Caring Hands, as viewed from the ballpark site about a block away. Note transaction in progress in the shadows.

Here's the current overview from the south side of the B ramp (from which the banner at the top of this page was culled).
This is the outside portion of the Metropolitan Club.
Discussions in progress on some very brown grass...
