Unlike most ballparks fenway Doest have an open side because Lansdowne and Ipswitch street are like 8 or 9 feet above the field, hence the green monster. Wrigley also doest have a similar hole, only parked after Camden yards did that style become popular.

I love Busch Stadium's. The Arch dominating center field is very cool.

Did you see the Cubans in the stands? It was fascinating.

Of those choices, I think I'll choose Seattle, HOWEVER, Pittsburgh has the best in the Majors.

Depends on where you sit. There are very good skyline views from the State Street Pavilion, and also from some of the upper level box seats along the right field line. One of my favorite views from Fenway is actually of the other direction, away from downtown. If you go to the upper deck concessions behind 3rd base, you get a fantastic view of Audubon Circle/BU/Brookline and out to Allston. Lots of dense urban elements of the less glamorous variety, which is something I love. It's the real city, the part that is usually hidden by skyline eye candy.

http://blogs.trb.com/sports/custom/b...rk-outside.jpg Obviously this picture is a little old.

Cant really make it out too well in this picture, but that huge sliding glass wall has a great view of downtown Miami. When the roof is closed the wall closes but its glass so you can still see the city. It is a great ballpark. One of the best I have been too.
