Thanks to my friend Kraig, we had amazing seats along the first base line. Here are two views, one during the overcast early innings and another after the sun came out:

The most reassuring and familiar site from the old stadium was the ageless, dominant Mariano Rivera, who pitched the ninth:

Lastly, two shots from the 4 train platform. (Traveling to the game I had taken the D, which arrives underground.)
