Looking back toward the park from just beyond the north end of the Northstar platform.
At the other end of the bridge, the configuration of the tracks has become clear.
These are the outside tracks which go under the promenade
North Loop Deli
Uh oh. A code of conduct. Clearly posted. I'm not gonna mention any names, but you know who you are... (Click to enlarge.)
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.)
Loading dock -- already in use!
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
Believe it or not, the actual outfield wall will be about where this fence is now!
The Ron Coomer corner features a bar.
Harmon is visible (barely) at the very center of the crowd.
The view from the upper concourse.
Jose Alvalade XXI Stadium in Lisbon, Portugal has towers much like I'm imagining to hold up our canopy while also making a bold statement on the horizon

Poles through the gap
I believe that the truck is parked in one of the curb cutouts which are being installed to facilitate ticket sales and traffic calming.
Bike parking available along Second Avenue
Name that band. Please. (Mick Sterling)

A detailed crowd shot. Click to enlarge greatly.
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.
7:52 PM It's nearing peak, and covering the stands behind third base.

Approach in the A ramp to the skywalk over Seventh
Typical standing room crowd which started early and lasted the entire game.
Time to paint those supports Vikings-purple.
A path for workers -- don't touch the plaza! -- in front of three giant Chia pets
Twins in HD on the big board
The view from section 210
The main concourse.
This is what I was working on while my photo was taken (click to see a VERY BIG version).
The Puckett Atrium
The plaza has been finished off just beautifully.
