The saddest event
Work in progress.
Look familiar? Unfortunately, just adding little balconies with cool angles will not offset the pervading ugliness.
Do you think somebody's already cooking hot dogs out there?
At Comerica Park, some aisles have railings and some do not.

Here is Seventh Street viewed from the west looking toward downtown. This will probably be the most pedestrian-friendly side (other than the plaza), but only if there is some psychological barrier between the people on foot and the people in their dangerously fast-moving automobiles.
Typical SRO view upstairs.
This is what will count as a knothole (actually, it's a gated entrance)
This will be a great sight on game nights.
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.
Go get 'em, boys!
I love this view of the Basilica.

Now looking north, the tracks emerge from beneath Seventh Street as freight tracks only. The Northstar line ends at the northwest corner of the ballpark. One day, however, you can bet that other passenger trains will approach from the southwest metro on these tracks -- if our legislators are smart and persistent, that is.
It looks like the Target-themed signage has spilled out to the surrounding area (this was taken from the entryway to the B ramp from Third -- the 394 entrance ramp tunnel)
This is where chain link is being replaced with fencing which matches the plaza
The louvres on Fifth have been completely filled in
Typical standing room crowd which started early and lasted the entire game.
Viewed from the sidewalk on Seventh Street. No skyway infringement needed.
This is a great spot for casually watching the game.
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
Hey! An unnumbered gate!
