Seat view from section 209 at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs

Sat here for my very first Cubs game in 2010 vs. the Washington Nationals. The atmosphere in and around Wrigley Field in is one of a kind. The hustle and bustle of the Cubs fans, the smells of the brats and beer through the air is part of what makes this park unique. The moment you walk into Wrigley Field you become a fan (unless you're from the South Side or St. Louis).
Section 209, however, was not so great. Everyone knows of the pillars at Wrigley but the organization doesn't print on the tickets which seats are obstructed by them. So be careful. We were in row 4 or 5 which was the same row as the pillar so it didn't bother us.
The seats were wider than what I've encountered at Fenway Park in Boston, another old ballpark but at least these seats face more towards the infield and not straight ahead.

Everyone at Wrigley seems to be friendly except for the ushers and food hawkers; they're some of the rudest people I've encountered in Chicago but they probably have to put up with a lot knowing how this fan base behaves at times.

To give you an idea what the view of the field is like from section 209, here is a Youtube video shot from there during a Cubs game at Wrigley Field.
