— Days Without Shea —

I As I said in a previous post, the Met game was lousy Opening Day, but Citi Field looks impressive.

I walked around the new ballpark today and took some photos for Loge13. Here is how the rotunda is shaping up:

The side of Citi Field facing the subway is the most complete:

Those giant arched windows along the side are probably the most memorable part of the facade. Here is a close-up:

Along the back of the stadium – facing the Iron Triangle – there is a small crack in the fence through which you can see into the future center field.
