One of those funny little sections above the entrance stairs
Locations for ticket machines near the Hrbek outdoor plaza
A look at Gate 34.
This is where you will put out your butts -- I mean enjoy some pretty flowers.
I don't exactly know what this is. A first-aid station? Concession office?
Looking from near the entry doors toward the center, the atrium is just visible at the far right.
That's Noah and my brother, Chris, checking out the Loge Box amenities
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.
5:45 PM, section 327, row 9, sitting: shade.
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
This is NOT Twins Territory anymore
Looking up Seventh Street (click to see what it looked like from the same spot in 1950)
Finally, a night game image -- complete with fireworks! (OK, it's either a construction photo which has been Photoshopped, or some lucky photographer spent the Fourth of July in the upper deck watching the fireworks over the river. Cool either way.)
This guy at the Puckett atrium chef stand caught me taking the picture and said I should stop back later because he was "just getting started." I still don't know what he meant.
I know you've seen these, but is there a better finishing touch anywhere else in baseball? I know not one.
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)
I think this promenade over the railroad tracks needs a name. How about the Halsey Hall Promenade? (Please do not throw cigar butts onto the tracks!)
The green in question (click for very large version)
Here's the view from the main concourse out through Gate 3 "Killebrew".
Walkway construction is progressing

Bench seating? (Click to see hi-res version.)
On this day, George was handling fruits and veggies right inside gate 34.
Looking down what was Third Avenue, and will be a freeway entrance ramp beneath the outfield stands.
The top of a warehouse visible beyond a parking ramp.
This view, from the Minnekahda building (or possibly a predecessor), looks toward the right field corner. The City Market, at left, occupied the land where the B ramp and Target Plaza now stand (over I-394). And the Overlook now juts out just a little beyond where that driveway enters the railyard.
Can you name that field? (Braemer Park, Edina)
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.

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...
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.
