Five leading Democratic mayoral candidates spent Saturday night as guests of tenants of a Harlem public housing development. The sleepover was coordinated by the Rev. Al Sharpton's advocacy group. The unusual event gave the candidates the opportunity to not only hear from potential voters directly, but also to see for themselves the conditions of some of the apartments. The next day, the sleep-deprived candidates held a press conference to talk about the experience.
