New York: shelter a right

"City agrees homeless have right to emergency shelter." I guess I wonder how it can be that in NYC people have a right to shelter, but not in Seattle. Is the homeless situation worse here in relation to the tax base? New York story here

I think behind everyone's mind is the current economic downturn. Will people maintain the "homeless people equals drug abuser/mentally ill" outlook in the coming year?
