— Days Without Shea —

Last Wednesday – when we were days away from clinching and the world was a beautiful place to live – I took a walk around Citi Field and snapped some closeups.

Here is the (I believe) South wall along the first base side, next to the Rotunda.

The hurry in completing that side is the Mets front office, baseball operations, sales and marketing are planning on moving in before the start of next season.
