Every day, a mismatched collection of tiny structures guard the most precious commodity in downtown Detroit: Parking. Known as parking huts or booths, these checkpoints are more numerous than you might think. Many are tucked discreetly behind fences or deep inside lots, painted to blend in.

Look closely, and you'll start seeing them everywhere.

Lacking a standardized design, the parking huts of Detroit have unique personalities. They almost feel collectable. A tattooed box in the Cass Corridor guards lucrative turf near Comerica Park. Sixth Street holds a daintier specimen, one of many Corktown huts leftover from the Tiger Stadium days.
