You'll be able to park here for a quick stop at the Pro Shop or ticket window.
I could gaze at this streetscape all day. It isn't perfect, but as a model for Minneapolis, I love it. (Except the Biff, of course. Click to enlarge.)
I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.
I meant to include this shot the other day. It's the new LRT bridge being built next to the remaining half of the Fifth Street bridge. The new half is almost TWICE the width of the portion torn down. And the other end runs right into a HERC administration building! (Click to see the view from nearly the same spot about 85 years ago.)
Just up the foul line, it looks like the base of the wall in foul territory on the right side.

These two sections are within a few feet of one another.
The model still shows the Batters Eye Club, which is no longer part of the design.
7:32 PM Glare begins at about the left field foul pole.
He'll always be a fan favorite, but did you know that he's making $18.5 million this year? The Twins' entire outfield today, combined, makes $7.45 million.

Here's where I was when the alarm went off, and though the siren wasn't terribly loud, at least one guy is plugging his ears.
The plaza as viewed from across the park. The right field overhang section will be built just in from where the plaza supports are.
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)
Dramatic night-time lighting.
