150 tents for homeless spring up on industrial land owned by Seattle
Craig Cory talks on a cellphone near tents set up Monday as a homeless shelter in Seattle's Highland Park. Cory lives in Tent City 4 on Mercer Island but came to help at the so-called "Nickelsville," linking Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels to Depression-era shantytowns. The city says advocates have 72 hours to remove the tents.
