It has long been considered one of the city's roughest public housing developments, but serious crime is down 40 percent this year at the Brownsville Houses in Brooklyn. Many residents say they notice the improvement. "No more guns are going off, people are not fighting," one resident said. "You could walk in the middle of the street, nobody arguing or cursing at each other." The city is on track to end 2017 with the fewest number of murders since the 1950s.
Staten Island's Empire Outlets, planned for the borough's north shore, were supposed to be open for holiday shopping by now. But they're still not finished and now organizers are pushing the opening once again - this time, to next fall. Borough reporter Amanda Farinacci explains what's behind the latest delay. With sweeping views of the New York Harbor and access to the ferry and all the tourists who ride it, developing Staten Island's waterfront would seem like a slam dunk.
There is uproar at a Staten Island high school after a pamphlet was distributed in some classes urging students not to join the military after graduation. NY1 Staten Island Reporter Amanda Farinacci has this exclusive report. A guest speaker at Port Richmond High School has students and parents talking â€” but not in the way an assistant principal intended. "It was very, a lot to handle," student Victoria Caliendo said. "A lot to take in, and just, like, overblown to say. Like, wow."

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
