Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!
It's pretty easy to see right into the Twins dugout!
This view, through a B ramp window, won't last forever.
Trees also have sprouted near the topiaries
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
The original Candlestick Park

I do love the upper concourse. Feels like home already.
LRT station has appeared.
Up close, this is what you'll see as you walk along.
Lunch break at the top spot. (Grandstand)
Once again, Noah is holding his ears because of the traffic noise.
This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
Supports for the little sections in the outfield.
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.)
Looking through it, you can see the outfield pavilion (upper deck at least).
Night games are much preferred by the players at Target Field. You can see why.
Greatest spot in the city for cooking up some hot dogs. And would you kill for that grill?
Just so you have a reference, this is an LD ("low def") scoreboard (inset is what the controller probably looks like).
Note the speakers hanging beneath that deck
Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think concourse.
That is the gun-metal gray wall of The Stadium just beyond the elevated tracks.
This is the left field pavilion in the original concept model. The restaurant pictured to its right has been moved, and the seating area has been extended at least one full section toward center.
A sign that your mall is all but dead: roped off escalators. (This is at about 4:00 PM on a weekday.)
This is the upper deck in Anaheim
