You may recall our story from last September, when reporter Brantley Hargrove took a look at Nashville's Tent City
, an encampment for the homeless above the Hermitage Avenue bridge. At the time, officials were about to vacate the area, citing violence and health concerns. That plan was later reversed, since removal would merely push the homeless back on the streets.
Tent City still stands today. And according to The Wall Street Journal, that makes Nashville something of a leader among cities
that accommodate such encampments, rather than dispersing residents with no where else to go. The paper also has an arresting photo gallery here
