New Nationals Park Exterior Shots
On the way home from yesterday's Winter Tour Event at The DC Convention Center--Sohna and I detoured over to South Capitol Street to update the exterior shots of New Nationals Park. From South Capitol at Potomac Avenue (standing on the SW Corner) there is a fine shot of the Entire Stadium. NATIONALS in red is now up on the Ballpark Front--placed just above the Stars & Stripes Club Glass Windows.
The African Queen and I especially enjoyed the sight of looking north--directly up South Capitol and seeing The US Capitol Building looming on the horizon. It was nice.
Here are some more of the photos:
National Offices--attached to the SW Corner of New Nationals Park
Left Field Line Concourse/Upper Decks--Home Plate would be to your right if sitting in the seats

HDTV Scoreboard--seen through the stadium--standing on South Capitol
Centerfield Restaurant & Press Box seen from N & Half Streets SE
And finally--Navy Yard Metro Renovation--Half & M Streets SE (Remember--the Monument Building being constructed above--does not need to be complete before The Metro Stop Opens)
Sohna and I are not construction experts--but the feeling we both gathered on this brief visit was: They've got a long way to go--before completion. Sohna commenting: "Are you sure we are going to be sitting in our seats in about two months?"
Good Question--But Ready Or Not--We'll Be There.
