A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.

Which way to the skyway? Really??
A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.
Griffith Stadium (notch visible in lower photo at far left)
Not from Moose's tour, but it's an image you need to see. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Did you know that the out-of-town scoreboard is covered by a black chain 1ink fence?
This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
The splendid view from the roof of the Minikahda building. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
A mini-freeway! (Police action in progress...)
Friendly faces greet you right inside the door of the Legends Club.
This was billed as a diagram of a super-suite. I'm not quite sure just where this (or these) will be located.
Seventh Street circulation
Section 125, Row 1
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.
His body language might as well be the box score.
For $19.95 you can load up your plate (one trip only)
This is where the plaza meets First Avenue
Sky through steel.
Roll-up metal doors visible at right.
This is NOT Twins Territory anymore
Artist at work
The dessert carts came out earlier, and looked even better than last year.
All three seating mounds
The reverse angle shows that the signage will only partially obscure views from the top of the ramp. The wall is pretty high up there, so you'll need something to stand on, but it appears that this is one of the so-called "knotholes".
From the B ramp, 6th level elevator lobby window
The view down Sixth Street toward the ballpark site. A pedestrian bridge will extend this street right into the main entrance of the park. The regrettable facade of Target Center is on the left. Butler Square is on the right. Click on the image to see what it looked like on this very spot about 100 years ago.
Flag poles, fencing, main entrance gates
