Replays on the out-of-town scoreboard!
For those who have never seen it up close, that's what it looks like when steam comes out of the HERC plant.
One of those funny little sections above the entrance stairs
The right field foul pole seen against a backdrop of Butler Square (itself a site of great significance in the history of professional baseball in Minneapolis)
This is from inside the B ramp, where an entrance to the plaza will one day be
Home Run Porch Terrace
The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...
That's Fifth Street (and a tattooed arm) in the foreground.
Which way to the skyway? Really??
Section 237, Row 15 (top of the Trap)
Another classic space in the making above the Hrbek gate.
Note the speakers hanging beneath that deck
This appears to be the floor to the home dugout!
The same section seen from Target Center. Yep, looks like bridge supports.
Yes, son, Memorial Stadium used to be right there, just beyond those gates.
The blue line now indicates where the back of the accessible seating ends and standing room begins.
This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.
The Carew lounge was all ready for some corporate event.
End of the line.
The Hennepin Grille appears to feature chicken, brats, and fries.

This was actually taken from the top floor of the International Market Square.
Friendly faces greet you right inside the door of the Legends Club.
Looking down what was Third Avenue, and will be a freeway entrance ramp beneath the outfield stands.
Hardware in the window! (But why are there three trophies? 1924?)
